I've also started on the repairs and finishing the second half of the antique quilt I'm doing for friends. The last one I worked on was cut in half by ripping out the stitches. Now I'm finishing what was left. The quilt is by no means a perfect example of piecing. In fact, it really is pretty awful. But it means something to these folks and they are planning on giving the quilts to other family members.
I had to remove one of the blocks in order to repair the first quilt. So I've made another block to place where I removed the one. (Actually, this is just a general picture of the quilt.) I've fixed one of the rips in the piecing. Two more to go. Then I'll put a border on. I've got some yellow from the collection of fabric my friends passed on to me so I think I'll use it for the border. I'll probably continue to use the baptist fan panto for the quilting. It is appropriate for the time. Here's the first one as it was coming off the frame. (Did I really not post a picture of the finished quilt? Do I even have a picture of it??)
The tree from the last post is down. Sniff. I'll miss it's beautiful flowers in the spring. It looks so bare where it was. You can look at the header to see how big it was!
All that is left is this stump. I keep telling myself the tree was rotting from the inside out but I am still sad!
Today I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced Modern Quilts.
That's it for today. It's time I head up to the studio to put the other two sides of the border on my TAW. Heck, I've got a little dress to finish for a little birthday girl too.
