Rescuing an Antique Quilt
A year or two ago, I came into posession of an antique quilt in terrible condition. No one wanted it. It was headed for the garbage.
My six year old daughter fell in love with it immediately despite the condition. I gave it to her. She has been using it to sleep with for months even like it is. I told her I would fix it. Now I have started.
First I ordered a bolt of Moda Bella solid Betty’s Pink. Then, a couple days ago, I took the blocks off of the quilt. It didn’t take much more than hour. The backing was the pink fabric that was falling apart, so it didn’t take much.
I thought I could put it back together quickly, but I will have to repair the pink in the center of each of the blocks. Now this will be the project that takes a while.
Wish me luck!
