This is Pete’s quilt I repaired; spending a minute out in the sunshine, before I folded it up to return to him.
If you’ve been following along, I posted as I worked on this vintage quilt and did the repairs. I love the way the
new fabric on the back crinkled up into the quilting! Looks like it’s been with the quilt forever, but the back is all
fresh and new, along with the blue border. Put a whole lot of hours into this, taking it apart, trying to get the original
quilt squares to “flatten out”….finally gave up and decided the really light blue squares were “bigger” than the rest, but
I was going to leave well enough alone.The cross hatching quilting helped I think. All and all a successful repair, and a few
more decades added to the life of this quilt.
On another note, I will not be posting or reading for 10 days. Off on a trip with my younger sister tomorrow; and
going to enjoy a little fresh air, some coffee on the fantail of the Ruby Princess, a little snorkeling and lots of relaxing.
Back to the Blog after the 30th of April. Keep stitching, but have fun while you do it!
