As I was browsing some antiques last week,
I found a few exciting treasures to bring home.
The first one is a top that I will quilt.
It has fabrics in it that remind me of some of the kits I have seen from the 1970s
but also some quite older fabrics.
It makes me think someone was trying to make a quilt with some found blocks
and had to add some current fabrics to finish it up.
I will be the one to finish it as a complete quilt.
This next one is also a top in need of quilting.
It is cross stitch on preprinted blocks.
It also has the quilting lines preprinted on it.
If I had not just seen one of my quilty friends working on something similar,
it would not have occurred to me to grab this one.
I think it will make a sweet little quilt when done.
The last of the three I have featured on my 365 day blog.
It is a complete quilt with the exception of the quite large and noticeable hole in it.
The damage is really mostly in the background fabric.
I figure I will need to sew five or six curved seams
to replace the pieces that are damaged,
sew the top back together,
Frankenstein piece some batting,
appliqué a new chunk of backing on it
and add some hand quilting to match what is there.
Good as done.
Wishing you things to be excited about,
