Quilt With Us

I promised to post the picture of the quilt I was repairing for my daughter.  I made this some 30 years ago from a pattern in a magazine.  I can't for the life of me remember the name of the pattern.  The repairs were to the cream colored borders.  For some reason the fabric where I had hand stitched the quilting had caused the fabric to start ripping.  I didn't have the cream colored floral print I originally used but I do have the blue fabric which as it turned out I didn't need to use.  As I mentioned before DD didn't want me to sew the new fabric into the quilt with my sewing machine, so it was all done by hand.  I made a simple zig zag hand stitched quilt in the outer border and a straight line quilting for the inner cream colored border.  There were a few holes in the center part of the cream fabric in the sashing which I also patched up.

What a lovely quilt! I think one name for the pattern is Hands All Around. You’ve done a lovely job with the repairs and I’m sure DD is thrilled with your results.

I admire anyone who can repair a quilt. Especially the vintage ones. They do amazing work, as you did too.

It's been loved to shreds! Isn't that what we all hope happens to our quilts? Very nice and will go another 30 years...
