I have a client who rescues a lot of quilt tops and blocks and pieces of quilts. She is amazing. She bought these cute little Sunbonnet Sue blocks at a yard sale, then sashed and bordered them into a quilt top.
This next quilt of hers is one that her daughter rescued for her. She found it in the remaining trash and garbage at a swap meet in another state. I think it is the cutest thing ever! She kept the edge trim of the blanket on and sewed it to some fabric she picked as a border.
I cross-hatched across the rescued blanket, using Permacore Dyed Natural thread.
