If you came across this bundle at a garage sale what would you do? Would you buy it?
What if some of the blocks were sewn together:
How much is it worth?
On a post last week I saw a quilt top that had been bought at a "yard sale" for $3. I didn't know how or why the quilt top had ended up there, or who valued all that time and effort at $3, but the story dismayed me. My imagination ran wild. It bothers me to think that one day my fabric stash, UFOs, quilt tops and even quilts could end up in the same predicament. What would happen to my stuff if I got run over by a bus tomorrow?
In fact, this is a partially completed quilt top from "Rotary Roundup by Judy Hopkins and Nancy J. Martin. I had no trouble identifying it because it is mine. It was started in 1997 after I had been sewing for 2 years. Today I pulled it out of the cupboard determined to save it from a garage sale fate.
PS. When I told my friends this sorry saga, they told me not to worry any more about my stuff going into a garage sale. They said they would look after it if that bus actually got me!
