I’m addicted to saving quilts.
This quilt came into the opshop that I volunteer for.
The usual sad story – wool batting that has been given a nice hot wash.
Look at the lovely applique. The quilt top was in good order – well worth restoring.Perhaps it wasn’t used much after the disastrous wash.I always feel so sad when something like this gets sent to the Opshop. Hours of hours of work stitching all that applique. It even has a name on it. Double sad, Sam doesn’t get to keep his baby quilt.
All un quilted, new back prepared:
I was lucky to find this very appropriate fabric in my stash:
A little bit of cat scanning, very important part of the process:
A little re stitching to do:
Sam replaced with buzz – sorry Sam:
All re stitched and ready to buzz out of here:
I guess it’s official – I’m a quilt restorer! Send your worn and weary quilts to me – I will refresh them.
Thanks for coming by.
