Gentleman who bought the last quilt I sold had a surprise for me last weekend. He brought over a quilt that had been his from when he was a child. His mom was moving out of the family homestead and was dividing up the possessions and came across this quilt, so of course she asked him if he wanted it.
He brought it over Saturday to see if it could be repaired, in the process of him using it, he caught it on the edge of the bed and some of the stars had started to come loose.
I don't usually want to take on this kind of job, and the big reason being, they are usually family heirlooms, and I am afraid of lessening the value of the quilt by doing modern repairs to a obvious antique quilt, but he really wants to put it back on his bed. So we are doing a quilt repair, all by hand, which is not that big of a deal, I Love doing hand work, which if anybody really knows me, knows that I particularly love English Paper Pieced Hexagons. I promise to load a finish photo when this beauty is finished. I am just about half way done with it at this point.
Then we move on to another quilt order for a queen size quilt with wolves, which will be placed in a Adirondack summer home up near Saranac Lake.
