So many are in this Polar Vortex deep freeze and being buried in snow. Are you feeling like this? This so looks like my walk way leading to the porch and I am so tempted!
I did get out yesterday and took Mom for some groceries and now I'm stuck inside for several days. Good time to finish up the repair work on this 1870 vintage quilt for a local family. We agreed on 'area' repair work within their price range. The center has the most damage and I'll catch some other spots. I have enough of the 'old red' to put a new binding on (thank you Diane for finding this old fabric in your stash).
The family has this quilt well documented and with the repairs, it should be with them for another 100 years.
I love working on these heirlooms - like touching and communicating with past quilters and feeling their love of the artistry as well as making a keepsake to be passed thru the generations.
You do such beautiful work on repairing and refurbishing antique family quilts that have been loved to pieces;)))
The family will be so thrilled...nice work hugs, Julierose
Nice repair work! I'm glad there are folks like you to do this work.
Beautiful job on the repair. I have an old quilt my grandmother made that needs significant repair. It’s stowed away for now, but you might have inspired me to get it out and see what I can do with it.
Tiptoe through the Tulips !!! Just wear boots and muffler. Love the repair, I guess all those years ago it might have been all hand stitched, or by a hand cranked machine.
Lkve the painted flowers on the snow, what a great idea. Very clever of you to repair the old quilt and for the family to be able to enjoy it for many more years.
The tulip walk is a day brightener for sure. Cold her with nuisance amounts of snow, nothing like you had. Nice that you could restore a quilt to be enjoyed for many more years.
Love the tulip walk, definitely cheery. Looks like you've gotten a good start on the quilt repair. We are due for -25 F wind chills and 4-8 inches of snow. That's on top of the freezing rain we had last weekend. I'm ready for spring!
Oh i wanna see you paint tulips in the snow lol
Glad you can repair that quilt. Stay warm. It's cold everywhere.
