More hand dyed FQ's and a quilt I saw across the street

I managed to get more FQ's pressed, folded, and stacked in my box. I am going to have to start a third box soon. I have three more stacks of hand dyes to go thru.

Across the street is a junk shop that sells all kinds of stuff. They buy at estate sales and auctions. I saw this ocean waves quilt hanging outside yesterday. It is about a twin sized quilt. It is hand quilted - I forgot to see if it was hand or machined pieced. The batting is thick and the backing is off white fabric that looks a bit like feed sack. The quilt is more striking from a distance and overall is in very good condition. I didn't see any hole or tears. They are asking $165.00 minus 10%.

I like the section in this picture where the background fabric was used with a dark tan color. It looks like the dark tan triangles are floating. I am not a green person, but I do like this quilt.
