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.
