|Hunting Season II, by Jeanne Turner McBrayer, 2008|
I was hoping he did not mean it had been chewed up by his dog!
When I got it back, the whole quilt was soft and cuddly...and the double-fold binding had totally worn off at the edge, and in some areas, at the seam.
Instead of picking out the stitches from the old binding, I opted to just lay my ruler along the old seam and cut the binding off with a rotary cutter.
As you can see, the old label was completely faded away. I usually use Pigma Micron pens and heat-set with an iron, but I guess it does not stand up to repeated washing over the years.
So, I made a new label and was sure to heat-set for at least one whole minute.
The old quilt now has a new look thanks to the striped-effect fabric that I found in the same box of fabrics as the original quilt.
Now it is ready to return to its owner...maybe with a jar of a gentle quilt soap?
