Repairing An Old Quilt


The top five sailboats of this old quilt were worn and frayed in spots, so I found a matching blue cotton fabric to cut, fold and top-stitch over them. The very small slip stitches made it tedious work, but lovely again. I found this quilt top long ago and quilted it for my oldest son who lives in Charlestown, MA; home of the Navy Yard and their oldest sailing ship "The Constitution".
