I love how this little bit turned out!
As a reminder, I purchased this as a tied quilt at an antique fest recently. This is what it looked like when I bought it.
The backing was terribly stained and shredded like tissue, so I took it apart, added new batting and backing, and hand quilted it.
It has been soaked and washed, but many of the stains on the front didn’t budge. I’m okay with that. It’s “clean dirt.” Aren’t these embroidered bits adorable?
Sadly, some of the black thread used didn’t hold up. I may go back and fix that.
I used a table cloth made from feed sack for the backing and the yellow binding is from a feed sack as well.
I love the feel of this.
The table cloth sported a beautiful repair. Can you even find it in the photo above?
It’s funny, but I had never seen this pattern with the embroidery before. Then while working on it, I saw a local ad for this quilt.
How crazy is that?
You can see from the photo above that this little quilt is not exactly straight and square. I like the quirkiness of it.
Have a great day!
