I will not have all the pics for that post until Tuesday, so I will post a couple of other projects that have kept me busy.
The rescue quilt was brought to me by a Mom who had begun it for a daughter and abandoned it about 10 years ago- it had been bundled up in a bag and perhaps made several moves? And when I got it my heart quailed a little but as much as Mom wanted it done for her daughter I knew I had to take it on!
Using a ruler I simply outlined the large triangles. The backing being a stretchy fleece is heavy, so the quilt does not hang flat against the wall but looks great on a bed and the fleece is a nice cuddly feature! It's a light purple color and actually looks really pretty but the photo does not do it justice.
A second project just completed is this delightful Grandmother's Flower Garden -it is a vintage quilt from the 30's and 40's I think, and the quilter had never finished the binding. It has been well stored and is in great condition so her daughter or granddaughter? brought it to me to complete the binding so that it can be used. It is not easy to hang a quilt with curved edges so I laid it out on the floor.
