Thrifted quilt

Wow, look what I found while thrifting the other day!

They labeled it a child's quilt, but I'd call it a lap throw, or a great picnic blanket.

It was at a little hole-in-the-wall thrift shop that keeps its fabrics stuffed in drawers, rolled up, and taped.
I knew this one was special right away.

Thriftstore price: $3.50

I got other goodies too--check it out here.

neat - that is a Barbie quilt.. At least that is my take with the Hawaiian fabric & all...

I took a photo of a quilt made with silk ties this past weekend at a quilt show - not sure when I'll post it to my blog, but it is in my flickr already.
