Nothing much planned for today....which means a bit of extra time for some slow stitching and maybe a bit of sewing time.
A friend asked me if I would repair her beloved quilt that was made for her by her grandmother years ago.
It didn't need much....a replaced binding....
....plus, there was a huge worn out spot on the backing, so I appliqued a heart over it. The heart is about 8" across....that's how big the L-shaped tear was...
The fabric that I used for the applique is at least fifteen-years old and was a favourite designer of mine at the time....and I can't for the life of me remember her name! Does anyone out there know????....it's going to bug me until I remember.
It is always an honour to repair old quilts. It feels like the original sewist is looking over my shoulder quite pleased that her quilt has been so well-loved.
When I finished that this morning I took a few applique stitches in this month's Fun on the Farm block, which is the current online BOM from Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day.
It's been a long time since I've done a Dresden Plate block!
Today I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching. It will be nice to visit with her to see what others are working on today.
