Awesome Garage Sale Find

On Saturday morning we hit some garage sales, on a quest for first reader books for Josiah. We hit pay dirt at a couple of them and came away with a load of books at 10cents each! But the find of the day... perhaps the year is this:

It's a crib quilt that was machine pieced and HAND QUILTED! I couldn't believe my luck. I couldn't believe the lady was selling it... and for one dollar! that's right, one dollar. I almost started to feel guilty, but i gladly handed over my dollar and took my find home.
it is really a fabulous little quilt. I hope to find someone who can date it with the fabrics, but since there are reproductions now I fear I would be off.
