What a lovely start to the new week I had. On Sunday I spent the entire day at the Alameda Flea Market shopping with my mom. It was the best ever! My husband and father both roll their eyes at the thought of flea marketing for 6 plus hours, to me it is heaven! My mom and I both found lots of little treasures. I found these three old quilts, all for a great bargain. I also got two new dining room chairs which you will see when I finish my dining room project. I even picked up a few things for my Vintage Swap partner. I have never shopped with an eye towards finding quilts before. There were so many amazing ones! I found a World War Two signature quilt in nearly perfect condition. It was absolutely gorgeous, but at $250, out of my price range, unfortunately. I have to say, to all of you quilters out there, I am in awe. I cannot even begin to imagine the amount of time and patience it takes to make one of these beauties. What a treasure for your families! My family will have to settle for someone else's work. I know I don't have the right personality for quilting, but oh how I wish I did!
