{Post #924} Yard Sale Saturday

Bonnie Hunter is hostessing another Yard Sale Saturday tomorrow.  I am getting a jump on it.  My faithful readers will have a head start on my items.  Tomorrow it goes to the public.  Here's how this works.  If you want an item from my list, email me (  It is first-come, first-served.  I answer the emails as they come in.  I charge actual shipping for all items, so let me know your zip code.  You can choose media mail (cheapest but takes the longest to arrive) for books, and for patterns, hoops, and quilt, first class or priority.  I will combine all items and give you one total with shipping.  I prefer Paypal but do take personal checks.  Here we go!

First up is my first large quilt.  It is a combination of hand quilting and machine quilting.  The large stars in the center have hand-quilted matching star shapes in the 4 corners of every block.  The quilt measures 88" x 104".  It has a white-on-white backing.  It will need to be washed before use as it's been stored for several years.  The pattern is called Stars in the Cabin.  Here is a picture of it all and several close-ups.  I want $150 plus shipping.

Next up are two hand-quilting hoops.  I used them both briefly and quilt w/o a hoop now.

The oval one is 9" x 15" x 1" deep.  The border hoop is 10" x 10" x 1" deep.  To use the border hoop, you open it up, pin your border to the "leader", then close the hoop on it and voila--you have a taut surface to quilt on.  (Border hoop is sold).  They are $10 each plus actual shipping.

Now for the books and patterns.  All are in like-new condition.  Descriptions are after each picture.
