It was a Friday in December, the location, an estate sale with an unusually good selection of antiques- in particular, vintage sewing items.
The box was about the size of a ream of paper- wrapped in a clear shopping bag with masking tape all the way around. "Unfinished crazy quilt - $14" was written on the tape.
My hands (and tote bag) were full...so I passed.
"Beth, Beth, it's half price day."
The "finished" part of the quilt is only about 2 feet by 3 feet- and the edges and backing are just pinned together, so there is a lot more unfinished about the quilt than finished.
