We had a great weekend away with our family. We went to the children's museum and the kids had a great time. We had two family barbeques, a trip to the cemetery, and a night out for mom and dad while grandma babysat. They are still recovering from it all - it is 8:15 am and both of them are still in bed - a miracle in our house.
I managed to fit in some thrifting on Saturday and yesterday and found what I consider to be my best find yet - this fab pieced quilt top! I have read of others finding quilt tops in their thrifting adventures and have wondered if my lucky day would ever come.
It is a flying geese pattern made out of a ton of different retro polyester crepe prints. I love it! It is so well made too - the points all match perfectly and all of the pieces are backed with a piece of muslin. There are six rows of geese and I think it is a twin size or possibly somewhere between a twin and a full. There wasn't a price tag on it when I found it so I took it up to the register and hoped for a good deal - with the 50% off Memorial Day Special they were running I paid $1.50 for it! A good deal indeed! I also found some other great things, but I will save them for later. This one definitely deserves its own post;)!
