Very cool looking
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Great save!!! Using SunBonnet Sue, Perfect!!!
How cute is that! You did good to come up with that fix!!
WOW you have done a terrific job repairing it and I like the idea of the sunbonnet sue addition. It does kinda look like she is standing on a snowball or maybe a stepping stone in the garden, I like that idea even better. Great job and well worth passing on. thanks for sharing.
I like how you solved a problem, with Sue walking in the garden. love it. joyce j
You've done a great repair job there.
I took a pic of the quilt laid on the bed and must admit to be rather chuffed with the result as initially I thought the Sunbonnet Sue appliqué would look odd but I think she looks rather nice in her garden.
I will make a couple more Sue's just in case as this quilt is another one the Muffin likes to rumple up into a nice bed for herself
You have done a good job there. I cut one of my quilts once using a rotary cutter while trimming the edges ready for binding. I cut a clean V shape through a fold of the quilt which was underneath. My heart went into my boots, I felt sick and I stood almost motionless for minutes wondering what to do next. I thought over a cup of tea and decided all was not lost. I used fusible thin vilene which I slipped in under the top fabric, sticky side up covering the clean V cut and gently fused the edges back together. It worked a treat. Then I stitched it for security. Phew! Your idea of appliqué is a good one. Nice to read a post from the UK.
