Those who overtly post eBay listings aren't usually very lucky. It really has to be more about the quilt. I've bought and sold several quilts, with the assist from a subtle suggestion in a Facebook post. If I'm selling something, I'll try to get a really good picture of it. Then, I'll post the picture. Often I will wait 'til someone else comments, and then let it slip that it's looking for a new home. The occasional "wow" picture with a hint of "available" is really all that's needed to connect a seller with a buyer.
That's exactly what happened with this fabulous double-knit polyester crazy quilt. Julie Silber posted the picture to the "Quilts-Vintage and Antique" page, mentioning that it was for the inventory. That's all I needed to hear. The commentary began right away, and there were many comments...lots of oohs and ahhs. While that was all going on, Julie and I were privately arranging for me to buy the quilt.
It was waiting on my doorstep when I got back from Nebraska. We had arranged to ship it a little later so it wouldn't be sitting around long, and I had my mail held and all delivered the day I got home. Julie sent it on approval because I wanted to see the back and make sure it could be sleeved for exhibit. But I was sure I wanted it, and luckily, the back will work just fine for sewing on a sleeve.
We thought it might be an edge-finished top, but it's actually finished. It was constructed with raw-edge applique, using double-knit polyester, tweed, and other wool knits, zigzag stitched to the ground, which also serves as the back and binding. It has no batting, so it's really a summer spread. And yes, it's a keeper!
