Yesterday Henrietta and I attended an auction. Everything from tractors to fencing to Christmas decorations. A 1936 Chevrolet car. But there were some unadvertised treasures. Quilts. There must have been a dozen. Like most auctions---items were lined up in rows. Lots of jumping back and forth. The quilts were in the LAST row! I had my eye on this beauty--and I came home with it!
A 7 Sisters quilt. My FAVORITE pattern--and one I have never made.
You can see where the green has faded to tan---

The pinks are no longer the same--they were probably the same pink when they were made--but not anymore.
