Mrs. A's Quilt

I have a co-worker/friend who asked me to do a favor for her. So of course I jumped right on it.  Mrs. A has the first quilt she ever did over 35 years ago that was hand pieced and hand quilted.  Now this quilt has seen a lot of love and it was starting to fall apart. So she bought some backing and asked me if I would quilt in the ditch around all of the squares and borders so that she could add some new binding.  Her goal was to keep it together for a little bit longer..so I said no problem.  I can tell you if I could have kept this quilt I would have.  It was so soft, warm and cuddly.  She is just hoping that she could get some more wear and tear out of it before it becomes a cutter quilt.  I just loved it and it was super easy to quilt back together.

Enjoy Mrs. A.

Just keep sewing,



  1. That is a great idea to extend the life of a much-loved quilt! I must remember this!

  2. I thought it was a pretty good idea myself. I told her I would remember it for future use as well.

  3. What a great quilt. That's nice that you were able to help extend the life of this beauty :)
