Thrifty Things Friday #144

Hi everyone!

TTF CoHost 1

Linda and I are happy you could join us for the party today!

Today I thought I would share a quilt I bought a while back. I knew it would be great for our bed during the winter months.


It is a King size quilt. and for $7.50 how could I NOT get it?!!


It is heavy and nice and warm and has been a cozy addition considering all the zero degree weather we have been having!


It was all hand stitched/quilted. so much time was put into this quilt!


And it has fiber fill poufy areas.


I know these calico prints are from the 80’s-90’s era. I really didn’t care. I hate to see someone’s hard work and time just sitting in a thrift store. I used to quilt and I know how much work goes into a quilt especially one this large!

I feel blessed to have this comfy quilt keeping us warm at night!

Tomorrow is the SNP! And it will be for Google+ (DiannLH)


Okay, let’s see your thriftiness!

  3. Diann, that quilt was a steal. I agree, it's difficult to understand how someone can put all that time and effort into a piece like this and then it ends up in a thrift store. Glad it found a good home.
