Karen brought in her Flea Market find to share with the Clubhouse Quilters…and YES, we all drooled over it!! Sorry about that, Karen…but REALLY you can’t bring in something like THIS and not have just a bit of drool!…OK…a LOT of drool!! It will mop up!!
We all wondered why this quilt wasn’t finished…Imagine getting to this stage in your HAND PIECED quilt only to abandon it!! Yowzers!! She must have been hit by a truck!
Not to worry…Karen to the rescue!! First up will be to repair any of the seams that are coming apart…and then she isn’t quite sure what to do…?
I think I would sandwich it with backing and batting and machine quilt an all over meander to give it stability as it is very fragile in this state. Then I would gently hand wash it…and then I would ENJOY it, as all quilts are intended to be!
What about YOU? What would you do with a antique/vintage hand pieced top in a fragile state…? Come on…Karen wants to know…
Oh…and the best news…Karen paid the grand sum of FIVE BUCKS for this top!! “SCORE!!”
Have a Super Satisfying Scoring kind of Saturday and Happy Stitching!~P
