Projects which Passed the Finish Line

Here're a few projects that have been completed:

My vintage dollquilt that I mentioned a few posts ago. The colorful patches are from my Great Grandmother and probably include some feedsack cloth. They are really, really old and fragile, so I washed them carefully, then quilted them with some new cotton cloth to strengthen them. This is a traditional pattern that could have been used back in Great Grandma's time. Although I did machine-piece and machine-quilt it. I love how it turned out. I'm hoping to find a nice shadowbox frame to put it in, so it can be displayed and preserved.

Otherwise, I bought 2 yards of soft tan corduroy upholstery and recovered our favorite office chair, which was ripped and pink! Didn't go with the new office decor. I took off the old upholstery and used it as a pattern to cut the new and VIOLA! It worked!

I love the doll quilt! I made a baby quilt in that pattern a few months ago. It was a fun one to make.
The chair looks fabulous!!
