    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.

    What a beautiful new life you have given to this family heirloom. It is definitely a treasure. You did a wonderful job with the quilting and it should be a wonderful warmth giver for many years to come. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
