In between other projects I've been working on patching up this Old Girl. This is an example of one of the blocks where the fabrics have torn away. Searching all the local stores trying to match the old fabrics has been quite an adventure. Notice that the "batting" was an old blanket ~ I love that!
So here is the block all patched up. My new fabrics added on top are not exact matches. The little check is a bit lighter, and I couldn't find any plaids like the ones in the quilt, but I did find a shirt at Goodwill that had the same colors and feel. I think it'll work since the over all quilt is very scrappy, and just a little wonky. At least my patching will give her new life. I'll show you the whole quilt when I have her all finished :)
And for the winner of my quilt book give away...Random.org gave me #2 ~ Pamela!
"I may have made a Resolution not to BUY any new books, but never said anything about winning them, right?" Yea for winning them!! Pam I'll be emailing you for your address :) Enjoy the day! ~ Dawn
