I guess I shall put this in the Discussion category, since it's still a work in progress, and I wouldn't mind hearing any tips anyone has on quilt repairs!
So, the day after Christmas, I managed to snag TWO antique quilts from some antique shops, for very fantastic prices. Only problem is they have a few issues that need to be dealt with. Nothing too major... mostly split seams and a few holes, so I'm super excited to be able to work on these and then snuggle up with them when it's cold! (I believe in resurrecting an old quilt and restoring it to "active duty".)
So, here are lovely photos! And this was also blogged at my site here.
Wonderful feedsack prints, and a very soft
backing. This quilt cost $60.
Closeup of the hole. It goes through all layers, so back, batting, and pinwheel block will have to be repaired.
This quilt was bought for $30 and is completely handsewn.
This is the beautiful backing fabric on the second quilt.
The only spot of damage, not even the size of a silver dollar.
