Some friends have a nice old family quilt that mysteriously was damaged, and I agreed to repair it.  Have I ever repaired a quilt before??  Nope.  But it was fun and didn’t take long…

the damage was on both sides, but not as dramatic on the back…

A damaged section of the quilt had been removed earlier, so I had some fabric to work with, made two patches…appliqued them on…

and then the fun part…re-quilting over the patches, trying to match my own stitches to the original quilters stitches…

All ready to return with only an hour’s work…nice to handle the soft and well worn original…

AND I’m nearly done with “sky writing,” a LONG time in the making…

which I got very very tired of, but it does have some great details in the quilting…

okay..time to fix dinner…over and out.
