Annette’s Quilt

I made this quilt-as-you-go  quilt for A’s 80th birthday four years ago.  It was supposed to be a rug for her afternoon nap, but she used it to cover her chairbed, lying on it constantly. Never having been designed for use as a mattress, it now looks the worse for wear.   Also, the chairbed is beside a South-facing window, and it is considerably faded.  I do like the faded look, but it makes it difficult to patch the various holes with unfaded fabric!  I am plodding along, mending a block at a time and hoping for the best  Annette's quilt in restoration

    We also have a faded quilt of yours – it lives in the mother-in-laws camper van to make the bed softer for sleeping on. No holes yet, unlike the one on the sofa which gets a lot of sitting on. I must take a needle and cotton to it again soon but may need to sew on some patches. It isn’t faded! Sally


  2. I love this design!! And the “loved” look…so good that you’re bringing it back though, Viv. 🙂

    I don’t envy you your task but, how lovely that it is faded and worn with use by somebody who has obviously appreciated it over the past four years.
