I finished taking this quilt apart. In the process, I found one piece that needed to be replaced.
I decided to applique a new piece over top rather than removing this. I thought I’d share how I did this. First, I placed a piece of printer paper on my wool mat.
I placed the top with the torn piece over top and stuck straight pins in around the edges of the piece.
This made holes in the paper.
Then I roughly connect the dots to make my pattern.
That should do nicely. The point on the original piece was blunted, so I will blunt the new piece as well.
Time to find an appropriate scrap to use and get it stitched in place.
I placed my paper pattern on my scrap and ironed the seam allowances over the edge of the paper.
Then I removed the paper and pinned my piece into place and appliqued it down.
The blue triangle here is slsd a replacement.
Time to get this basted!
Have a good one!
