Now when I show you this, please be kind.
This is one of the first quilts I ever made.
It was a tie quilt.
The border was just the backing flipped over and turned under.
That being said.
When this quilt came to me it was a mess....I put it away
Fix this quilt.
One day tuned into 25 years.
Here you see that the binding has come undone at the top and bottom.
The stitching came undone in some of the squares.
This was a very loved quilt.
Just another picture of the binding.
So I was just going to take the binding apart and put a new one on.
I was going to fix the seams
Take out all of the yarn for the ties.
And....just meander it.
Oh my gosh............What was I thinking. I made clothes for my school...I knew that you had to have all squares equal?
So what was I thinking?
I am so embarrassed.
This is what I saw on the inside.....shame of shame.
I have no excuse (I am red with shame)
So....I took it all apart...literally.....seam by seam
Cut the squares down.
Sewed them back
and this is what I got.
The batting was high loft....I hate quilting high loft but thought since the years of
washing and abuse that it would be okay.
It was not but I got started and just kept going.
My baby is having a baby....YEP...our third grandbaby...
Do I get a WHOOP!!!
That is why I wanted to fix this quilt for my son to give to his baby.
Turned into a redo.
and I also quilted this panel for them.
When my son's wife decides on colors for her baby room I will make a real nice quilt but for now....
.let the fun begin!!!
