Quilt Repair Process

Remember this top from my bloggy friend, Ila? I started working on repairing it.

This was my first repair. I carefully removed that block with the tear.

Then I took a tuck in the back of the block.

It’s hard to even see the seam!

The seam allowances were so large that I had no problem stitching this smaller piece back into place.


Some of you suggested using some of those large seam allowances for patching. That worked out great!

I don’t think these will be noticeable at all once this is quilted.

Reason came to me and I decided that with those large seam allowances, that machine quilting would be best. I hope to get started with that today.

Before I go, I wanted to let you know about this amazing sale at Connecting Threads . Make sure you use the code, SEW4SUMMER to get the deal.

Have a great day!
