It's Sunday... time for some relaxation and slow stitches.
This week I have been mending a 10 year old quilt. My granddog Max loves quilts to snuggle in, and to eat. He isn't allowed to be around quilts these days except under strict supervision. He chewed a few holes in some quilts and I have taken an interest recently in doing those repairs.
I have learned quite a bit about mending quilts from reading Carole's blog posts at From my Carolina Home and felt ready to tackle the repairs. This is a smaller rectangular patch that I am appliqueing on the backing over a hole that goes right through the quilt.
And here is a fussy cut piece that will fit over a larger sized hole.
Once the holes are patched on the backing, I'll work from the front, add small pieces of new batting and applique a new patch on top.
What are you hand stitching today? We'd love to see your projects, and hope you will link up your blog post below.
