personal shopping | quilts & coverlets

Marian ParsonsAntiques, Shopping Tips

I hope you had a great weekend!  For the most part, I stepped away from work, so I could rest up for the busy week ahead.

Anyway, I browse for cool things online pretty regularly.  I particularly like Etsy, eBay, and craigslist.  I sometimes trip across really great buys that I snap right up, but I’ll also find pieces that are a good price, but not a good enough price for me to resell and I don’t have a perfect spot for them, so I just pass them up.

Sooo, I thought I would share some of the things I come across with others who might want to buy them.

Today, I hunted around for some well-priced quilts.


I paid $125 online a few years ago for the one in the picture above.

When I’m shopping for quilts, I look for ones around $150.  Of course, less is better, but I have learned that I can find pretty nice quilts around that price point.  They usually have some fraying, small holes, staining, etc.  Those imperfections make them affordable, but I make sure they don’t detract from their overall beauty.  So, I picked out quilts that fit those qualifications.


The first one is actually a coverlet, but it’s pretty great and I had to resist buying it myself.  I will resist.


Blue & white Coverlet | $109


 I thought this multi-colored fan quilt was so cute.  I like how blue and white are the dominant colors, but it has some pinks, yellows and greens as well.


Fan Quilt | $125


This berry basket quilt has amazing quilting and I think it could be strategically folded to hide any imperfections.  Based on the descriptions and closeups, I think this picture isn’t quite doing the quilt justice.


Blue & White Berry Basket Quilt | $125


This one is pretty amazing.  I have almost bought it a couple of times, but there’s some red in the green fabric pattern and that doesn’t really work for me, but the pattern is stunning and I know it’ll work for someone!


Green & White Quilt | $125


This tree of life quilt doesn’t have intricate quilting, but I think the pattern is really pretty and I  it would be great in a little girl’s room, folded up at the end of the bed.


Pink & White Tree of Life Quilt | $149


I love red work and this quilt is such a great example of it…


Red Work Quilt | $150


And what’s even better than red work?  Blue work...  The “good night” square is my favorite.


Blue Work Quilt | $150


I know this one looks crazy at first glance, but imagine it in a sport-themed kid’s room or man cave.  Denver Broncos, UVA, just pick your favorite blue & orange team!


Blue & Orange Quilt | $85


I’ll share some more of these posts in the future, but let me know if there is something specific you would like me to “shop” for!
