In previous posts, I mentioned Sandy and I are working on three vintage treasures for mom’s friend, Bea.
The third and final Vintage Treasure we are working on is an 80 x 80 inch quilt top made from flannel and corduroy shirts worn by Bea’s father.
The flannel squares were cut 6 x 6 inches and finish at 5.5 x 5.5 inches. Some of these shirts were well worn, making it a really special quilt. Below you can see the shirt pocket outline in the blue plaid square.
This top needs a bit of TLC as many of the squares were sewn together by hand and have frayed or split apart.
I think we should be able to fix this quilt top in one day by reinforcing the hand sewn seams by machine.
There are so many nice flannels here and we bought solid red flannel for the backing.
We love this quilt and can’t wait to show you the finished project. It’s a true family legacy.
