I am reworking an old comforter for my cousin. She asked me over a year ago, but it is close to being done. It is my One Monthly Goal (OMG) for January to finish the quilt before the end of the month. Patty at Elm Street Quilts runs this little keep-your-list-moving party and you have one more day to enter. Here are the details on the program in general. Below you will find a link to linkup for January. Its pretty simple, post/declare a goal and at the end of the month, post/declare a finish.
I took it apart. You can see that there are some very worn pieces. I worked with it for awhile, but, I found I needed to wash it.
Yup, that was the result. Note to self: wash anything like this as a whole, not after you cut it up. We decided on a 2 1/2” strip by 6 1/2” strip. It will be about 42 x 60 when the top is complete at this stage. Decisions and fabric for the border, binding and backing need to be made. I am hoping to have those made by the end of the week along with the top, so that I can quilt and bind after the 15th. Wish me luck.
