Gotta Fix This Quilt

In 2017, I made a quilt for my son to replace the quilt I made for him when he went to college 12 years ago.  He brought it home and asked me to do some repairs.  So many seams came apart as seen in the pictures below.


I don't remember what thread I used.  I will be very disappointed if it turns out to be one of my expensive threads.  On top of that I have to figure out how I will fix this.  If anyone has any ideas and has done this before please let me know.  I still have some time before I start working on it.

Right now I plan to requilt the whole thing with a thicker thread.  I'll do top stitch on every seam, be it ribbed or not.  I liked the 3-ply 100% cotton that I used to quilt my sister's quilt.  I think I'll use that.

Have a great quilty day.....

Face Your Fear Project Update

I had a lot of fun, more than I should, working on the Face Your Fear Project.  It's finished with a sleeve and ready to move out.  I'll put a label on it before the moving day.

January OMG


 Hello everyone,

I'm so glad that Patty Dudek is hosting One Monthly Goal again this year.  I had a great time playing along last year and I'll do the same this year.  Thank you Patty!!

It’s time to set a goal for January.  

In 2016, our ValleyMQG had a challenge called ‘Face You Fear’.  For some, fear might be curve piecing, and whatever it was, we were supposed to make a mini quilt to demonstrate our fear.  This is what I made and you can read about it here.

I’m not a fan of this creature, 😫😯😵, that’s why I made this piece.  It's been tucked away in a pile of scraps of all this time because I didn't want to see it.  I have a dear friend who absolutely loves this kind of creature and she wants to buy it from me.  For this month's OMG, I will quilt this piece and give it to her as a gift.  I just want it out of here.   😆


Happy New Year and Happy Sewing.......
