    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.

    Oh it is sweet. I have not seen that pattern before.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    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.

    That is so cute and what a treasure. I have a quilt that was made for me when I was born. It was fun to use it with my children. Sadly my son didn't want it for his children. I found it in a box in their basement so I brought it home and will have it framed!
