Tore up with seams coming undone. Quilter extraordinaire to the rescue!
First, I laundered the item with the torn binding still attached. I didn't want the patchwork strips to fray any worse than they had. I then removed the binding, backing and batting. I cut out the appliques to cover where seams had come undone.
I cut the sashes and borders and sewed them on *whirr*
Each applique piece covers where the original patchwork had frayed. It was not a masterpiece to begin with but I have grown to love it.
Post update - I finished this small project at the end of November.
In the meantime, quilter eye candy -
