No Quilting Makes Jill a Cranky Girl




Since returning from the mountains, I have had NO time to quilt!!! I have been busy all week preparing for a garage sale with my sister and sister-in-law! Don't want to make a lot of money ,just clear some space in my basement. At least the outside temperature is supposed to take a little dip--from 100s to 80s--on Friday. That should help! Since I have nothing new on the quilting front to post, I thought I'd put up some photos of some vintage quilts that will go in the garage sale. If they don't sell there, they will go on eBay. Gotta start downsizing!!! I could have a great sewing space in my basement if we could only find the basement floor!!!

GReat quilts but I hear you about finding the floor. It's more fun to make new quilts than to look at old ones, no matter how beautiful they are.

Lovely, lovely quilts! Surely they will find a good home if you do not want to keep them.

Wish I could come to your garage sale!

Those are great quilts. I understand about making room though. Wish I could come to your sale also.

Love your quilts, but that middle one is super. Wish I'd be at the garage sale!

I think I like the fans with the minty green border the best - good luck on your garage sale!

Those quilts are darling! It must be a serious clear out, is it hurting you to part with them? If you weren't so far away, I'd come to your garage sale for sure!

Darn! Put 'em on Ebay now! & give us the link! You'll probably get more money & we'd have a chance to buy one!

Hanne said...

Lovely quilts. May they come to people who will love and cherish them. I know all about finding the floor. Good luck with your sale.

Oh boy, I sure do hope that works out good for you and someone wants to give those beauties a new home!!
I can totally identify with too much stuff...and I've been downsizing since 2002 when I sold my house..*S*

Oh I LOVE the 9 patch one! What fun! Its ok if your busy, and I sure know how not sewing can make you cranky! I've been cranky lately too! I'm finally getting a chance to catch up with everyone! This summer has been way too busy!
