    Smile Rescued Quilt

    My DD rescued a quilt for me off Freecycle. She was told after they finished it, they just DIDN'T LIKE THE COLORS! I love the muted colors.

    The whole quilt was there - quilt top, batting and backing, stitched around the edges but just not quilted. I opened up the seams, put it on my long arm and quilted with a loose meandering stitch.

    It is a full size quilt and I think it is very pretty so thank you to the lady who made it and all the work that went into it. It is beautifully sewn.

    It's beautiful! All that work . . . must have been more to the story, than told.

    Nessie, I tend to agree- too many times when someone lovingly put lots of work into something only to be looked at by the potential receiver as a piece of trash. Not seeing the love that is there.
