A co-worker has loved his ex-mother-in-law's quilt to the bone. (Yes, he kept the quilt after the divorce. Nice, right?)
Oh yes, to the bone!
Both ends are very yellowed. It will have a long hot bath with Dawn once I am done. Some fixing is needed at both ends.
It is machine pieced and hand quilted. Done some 30 years ago, in brown and salmon colored calico fabrics, it has faded somewhat. It makes it hard for me to find some matching fabrics. A muslin was used for the background and for the backing.
The little bit on the bottom right is the one I sewn in. It looks so bright but that is the best I can do. After mending this one, I read on the web that it is better to leave the old fabric in and just applique the new one on top. Ahhhhh! I guess it will be easier and faster than removing the old torn fabric. ':^[
So this will be my slow stitching project for today ... and the rest of the month! Hehehe! No, it shouldn't take that long, except that I only have one fabric in my stash that matches. Time for a shopping
I'll be at Kathy's place for Slow Sunday Stitching. Catch you there.
Until next time .... I'll be enjoying the sunny days!
