A Good Day at Estate Sales

Yesterday I went to two estate sales in the area that had pictures of quilts on their listing.  My dad told me that if I did not get there early they would be gone. 

Lucky for me, he was wrong!!!!  

At the first sale I found the quilt below.  It is a lovely hand quilted quilt and I think hand pieced also. 

The second sale was a former antique shop dealer and the house and garage were full of stuff!!!  The house seemed like it was added on to several times and I ended up in the attic digging through several boxes of fabrics and linens.  Then at the bottom of one of the boxes I found the quilt below.  The tag says it is called Tic-Tac-Toe and is from the 1930's.  

I do love making my own quilts but these two quilts were quite a find.  I showed them to my Dad and he liked them both - though he liked to red one best. 


  1. Wow! Those are lovely! Dad has a good eye for quilts, I like the red one best also.

  2. Yes, the red & white one is one of those lovely classic quilts. Great find. The Tic Tac Toe is a clever pattern. Looks like you had fun shopping!
