    Vintage Baby Quilt I Did Repairs On

    I had to show this cute vintage quilt I just did repairs on today. My co-worker is expecting next month and this quilt belongs to her DH and was made by his grandmother. It's all hand stitched. She asked me to fix the seams that had come undone. I made about 20 little repairs on it by hand and I could feel the love that was stitched in that quilt. It was truly an honor to make the repairs so it could be handed down to the next little guy in the family. Check out these cute turtles.

    It's a Drunkard's Path variation. It's in a DP book that I have.

    Truly a gift of love - from his grandmother and from you to do the repairs for them.
