Guild Visit: North Coast Needlers

Last week I went to visit a local-ish guild, the North Coast Needlers. They are a great group of creative ladies and we had so much fun, first with a trunk show followed with an Aura workshop the next day. 
During the Show 'n Tell portion of their meeting, one lady brought up three quilts she bought and one her mother bought at a yard sale the previous weekend. Each quilt was gorgeous and made with attention to detail and was hand quilted by the same woman. She has since passed and none of her family wanted them so they put them in the yard sale. 

The quilt that grabbed the "rescuers" attention was placed at the corner with the sign and a random selection of items for sale. It was one of two absolutely gorgeous Dresden Plate quilts. One quilt had purple stitching all over it followed by  the final quilt with stars. 

The price for all four? (Meanwhile these quilts were all twin size or bigger) The grand total came to $45. It was $10 for each Dresden plate and the star quilt with the purple stitched quilt priced at $15. 

I'm sure I would have taken pictures if I could have gotten my jaw off the floor. I love the hear stories of quilts being rescued like this, but it truly breaks my heart to hear when family members do not wish to cherish a loved ones hard work. 

Do you have any rescued quilts?
