I made this quilt 6 years ago, for my son, Colin and his wife, Jenny. I loved making it, I loved the colors and I loved how that little bit of applique added just the right touch to the quilt. Sorry about the picture I am having a hard time finding a spot in the house that does not wash out the color.
So imagine my dismay when they brought the quilt over last weekend because the applique is coming off!
My worse nightmare come true!
Upon further inspection I found some leaves that were loose too!
It really is a pretty block....which I will be stitching down again....
I embroidered the year and their initials in the center. It is a little hard to see, the sun is very bright today.
Any suggestions? I have always used silk thread and now I am having second thoughts about using it again.
Even though it is only 6 years old, I like how it looks like an old quilt with the quilting and all puckery.
