Thrifty Tuesday

It isn't garage sale season yet but on Saturday there was one advertised so we went. There were not many items and at first I was disappointed but then I saw this quilt. I took one look at the delicate pink and lilac  colours and the cheerful birds appliqued and I wanted it. Being frugal I asked her if her price of ten dollars was firm or if she was open to offers. At first she said she wanted ten but then she changed her mind and I paid eight. It isn't a heavy quilt, more a coverlet. You can't really see it but there are two bands of purple rickrack  and those purple flowers are embroidered. I am thrilled with my lovely quilt.

In the picture below you can see the rickrack near the bottom. Next up is a paisley design then a purple polka dot then another floral followed by a tiny pink floral and that pink is what was used for the other side of the quilt.

Do you have a passion for pretty quilts?
