This pattern is called Brocante. I love the illusion that the diagonal square goes behind the sunflower material. I want to do this pattern again with a more limited pallette. This lap quilt is for my daughter Angie.
I'm repairing an old quilt. Above is one edge before and after the repair. The idea is to not do anything that can't be undone, so I'm sewing new cloth on top of the old. I'm doing it by hand, since the whole quilt is hand made. I see some other places where the quilt has been repaired in the past. I wonder about the maker of the quilt and the people who used it. Obviously, it was a well loved and well used item.
This is the edge before the repair.
During the repair.
