frankenquilt


i finally "fixed" a quilt that i started in 2008. it was beautiful and i loved it, but then i put it in the wash. i wanted to cry (actually i might have) when i took it out of the wash. about 5 seams ripped open.

so here it is, with all it's satin stitches to try to cover the mess. i started out with appliqueing flowers from the print fabric over the stitches, but i thought that looked weird, so i just tried to sort of camouflage it. i'm not sure what i'm going to do with it since it's definitely not good enough to even give away. i might as well share it with you, the frankenquilt.




it stinks, because i really like this quilt.
oh and i almost forgot to tell you the funny part. i was setting everything up to take the pictures, camera on the tripod, timer on, click the button, run over and hold the quilt to get a pic, when i realized i had no pants on.... click. thank goodness for the delete button.
