Just a Little Spoiled

One of my parents favorite past times is to go garage sailing. They find many treasures. It is one of the highlights of visiting grandma and grandpa for my kids. My children have learned to drive a hard bargain thanks to their grandparents. Well, this last weekend my parents stopped by on their way up to our family reunion with a big bag of goodness. Most of it found at garage and estate sales. And yes I'm feeling more than a little spoiled after opening it up to find these treasures. First this quilt that has set on the cedar chest at the end of the bed in my parents guest room. I've always admired it. I always planned to draft my own. Fortunately Sherri taught it as a class at Bryce a few years back. I took advantage of the already drafted pattern and enjoyed her class. You can find my quilt here. Not quite as traditional.
The bag also contained this ocean waves quilt. Another on my bucket list. This one is well loved, and will continue to be. 
 This sweet basket quilt, also well loved found it's way to me in that magical bag.
Finally this table topper sized grandmother's garden came out of my Santa's sack. 
 It has found a home on my piano. Where I'll count it as one of my many blessing. Thanks mom and dad. I'm truly spoiled.

  4. Wow, you really are lucky! I love that first vintage quilt so much! It looks like a pattern I have, called Hopscotch by Thimbleblossoms. I have been undecided on fabric but I would love to make something similar to this one. Thanks for the inspiration.
