I found myself tightly ensconced in the role of a cobbler’s child. I have time to repair quilts for others but not repair my own. The very first quilt I made was given to my mother. When it started to wear she put it away. I inherited that quilt back when she passed away. I always had intentions of fixing it but never seemed to get around to the task.
This past weekend I bundled it up and took it to the church. I picked out all the quilting and hung it up to find the spots needing repair. When you look at the picture you can see blue painters tape in two spots. There are 5 spots in all. Three need the seam resewn and the other two need a strip replaced.
Now that I have it to this point it will be a lot easier to work on it. I made all the rookie mistakes. Sewed with a 5/8” seam, not enough quilting for the batting. Maybe not all but I hope I’ve improved. In the process of my ongoing stash organization I came across the matching fabric! Serendipity.
What are you putting off doing for yourself that you readily do for others? Time to make yourself a priority!
