Pin, pin, pin.

Today, I am working on the restoration of an older quilt which belongs to a co-worker.

Lots were done so far ...


some are pinned and ready to be stitched down.



An entire arch is waiting to be pinned next.



Then, when all this is done, I think I can move to the other end of the quilt ... and fix some more. :^D The thing is the more I look the more I find more pieces in need of some fixing and I never get to the other end of the quilt, lol.


Until next time ...


Slow stitching on a slow sunny day ... bliss!

;^)


Joining Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching. Catch you there.

  5. Yes, one of the hazards of repairing one area is that it makes the surrounding areas look sadder by comparison... Good luck!

  6. I agree about finding more and more places to repair. I'm working on a neighbors childhood quilt and keep finding more frayed spots than I saw at first. Good luck with your quilt; it looks so pretty so far.

  13. I don't think I would find the work a fun thing to do. How good of you to do that for your co-worker.

  14. Hum, so you have some arcs to add and repairing others? On the arcs are you turning under the raw edges as you hand stitch it to the background? I have some old arcs and haven't figured out what to do with them. Maybe I should just needle turn appliqué them to a background. You are inspiring me to actually work on that project.

The new seat covers are taking shape. It looks so good with its dark frame. Then the basting started. Not many pins left. But...
