Remaking an old quilt! So sad.
This is a little quilt I made for Noah, our first grandson. I made it 5 years ago. It was the first quilt I made using a wool batting - I'm never going to do that again! I discovered after I made the quilt that the batting was a very bad batch - my excuse was that I was a very new quilter then.
Naomi has used the quilt for Noah and then Tyson (3rd
Grandson). I made Tyson a quilt (oops - not finished (note to self - you are a bad Wally!)) I'll finish that quilt this week.
Ava-Rose was born this week so she got the new pink and green quilt that I made for her. I gave that to Naomi this morning and I asked for Noah's quilt back for re-making. She had it in the car so I got the poor little object.
Such a sad sight. I didn't take a photo of the quilt before I unpicked it this afternoon but this is a picture of the batting after I pulled it apart.
You can imagine what the poor little quilt looked like. Not a pretty sight at all.
I'm remaking it with a good quality cotton batting. I will post a picture when I have finished the quilting and binding. It is sandwiched and ready!
