Enchanted Quilting

Turkey Tracks or Wandering Foot Redux

Recommended Posts

This quilt was a restoration project completed by a quilting friend of mine and myself.  You can see in the before pictures that this hand pieced quilt had some hand quilting done and then the quilter started taking some of the piecing out.  This was done in the 1980's...it's been in a plastic bag ever since.  The pins have left some marks (not as bad as it could have been) and there are stains both from ??? and from blue marker used in the 80's and never removed.  We have done the best we could for this 80 plus year old quilter that wants this to go to her son.  Bless her heart.

Wow!  what a transformation!  I just finished a quilt stitched in the 1980s and just now found in a shed but in a plastic box.  Mine turned out well but not as lovely as this, I think.  Problem is......I am afraid some of the fabrics are a poly blend.

What a wonderful finish! It has come alive and is now a quilt, not just a sad lonely top!
