The colors on this one are BRIGHT yellow- dandelion yellow- although the photo doesn't show it. What you can't see is one end pretty much in tatters. The wife said her grandmother made it for her and it was on her bed growing up. Because the star doesn't go all the way to the border I told her I could easily fix it if it had sentimental value. Nope, none. These quilts will end up in an estate sale and the new owners will never know who made them.
And it even has a bit of humble patchwork to it.
I had two more quilts to look at, one a Lone Star in silk that was disintegrating and another top and back that had been taken apart to replace the batting.
I went to her house today because she told me she had found more quilts. One was 2 sided and a little older than these, but lumpy and tied.
I don't have room for every single orphan quilt so I'm hoping they will find a home better then a garage rag.
