old quilts in texas

When we were in Austin last month, my daughter-in-law took me antiquing!  She knows I love it, so we planned a day away from SXSW and “the guys”.  Heading north out of Round Rock, our first stop was Burnet, Texas (note:  pronounced BURN-it), which is a very small town centered around a square with the courthouse.  It was Monday, so quite a few of the stores were closed but we found this shop:
