I spread out this very old quilt top made by either Tommy's mother or grandmother to pin the places it had come apart.
Sewed those up and started to iron and found a least a hundred more where it had frayed and pulled lose from the other fabric.
Maybe i can finish it today and start to put it together.
I just hope it's enough to do four for the girls for Christmas.
With a 50 percent off coupon from Jo Ann's i got it for 99 cents a yard.
It's more like what would have been used when they made these tops many years ago. I wish i new who made them but their was some sewing machine seams where some one had tried to fix them before, i guess his mother because she had a machine but so did his grand mother i think, a treadle!
We will never know because his mother died a few years ago at the age of 91 and for years before that she didn't answer questions.
Have a good one
