Vintage Finish!

So, one of the nurses I work with got this Vintage Quilt Top
from her mothers house in the south when
she passed away.  So she brought it to me for repairs
and finishing.  It looks like it was made from
old kitchen towels and pajamas.
                                              It needed a bit of repairs, split seams and such
                                        and then quilting and binding.  Its finished now, she
                                                   is really pleased with it.  Score! Done!

Putting the husband to work!

Some days I just need to remember to be grateful for my sweet husband.
He puts up with so much from me.  He holds my place in line
at the fabric stores while I am off still picking out
fabrics.  He runs to the grocery store for whatever
it is that I have run out of in the middle of baking.
He even does all the dishes after I make a huge mess baking and
then goes and works two jobs!  Now, trust me, he isnt
perfect but hes a good guy and he supports my fabric hoarding/quilting
obsession, that right there makes him a keeper!
In the picture above he was making the little loops for my potholders,
sewing them and turning them...
Then I made him do something that I HATE to do, we got out the bin of
batting scraps and set to work zig zagging them
together to make large enough pieces for the potholders.
It took us over 2 hours, but we got it done! 
Look at that concentration!!
Ya, hes a good guy....and all he wants is a good dinner at the end of the day! 
Thanks Dear!
