After a year or so now drooling over the finds that borad memeber have I finally found one of my own!
We went to a city wide rummage today in Saukville and look what I found. Only $20.00.
Like a true quilter I did ask if the woman selling it had any idea as to the history of it. Who made it or where it came from. No luck there.
So now as I get it home and washed and dried I see that the batting is very clumpy. There is some hand stitched quiling but not much which explaines what happened to the batting.
I am thinking about taking it apart and re sandwiching and quilting it. But then I think again maybe I should leave it how it is and keep the integraty of the person that spent so much time on it. Not that they will ever know - but I keep coming back to that.
I would like to fix the batting - do more quilting - and put a binding on it.
What would you do?
