    an oldie but still goodie...quilted by Heather

    This quilt has been with us for a many years. The first pic show the wear. It has been loved...alot!!!
    I took it apart the other day, made a layer of fabric to go under the quilt top(some of the fabric is so thread bare and I don't think it can be fixed so now a new layer will show through if the fabric rips). It has new batting and my oldest picked out a home dec fabric for the back. I quilted it in very loose feathers and did little rays in the fans. Today, I will put a new binding on it and wash again so it can crinkle up if it's going to.
    I'm glad I was able to save this quilt. My mom made the fans years ago, and a friend of ours pieced it, now I got to quilt it. I will be making a label for it later on to save the history of the quilt so it isn't forgotten.
