I made this quilt for my twin extra long bed when I went to college. (I was totally a cool kid.)
It's flannel on the back and is super cozy. We still use it on our bed in the winter (especially when we know the pit bulls might be sneaking their way onto the bed.)
It had some little holes where the seams had come undone.
It also had some spots on the binding that had been loved (chewed) a little too much by a pet rabbit when I was a kid (his name was Roscoe Peterman.)
Not the prettiest binding repair, but this is more of utility quilt for us.
This is the very first quilt I ever made!
It was on my bed for years as a kid and was washed and used about a million times. It had tons of holes like this.
Even in an area with several repairs, they didn't end up being that noticeable.
Then there was this butterfly quilt.
It had some applique wear.
This quilt was probably the most complex quilt I made when I was a kid.
It had a lot of these guys.
See, not so noticeable in the end.
There was also this table runner.
Not even very old, but I hated the binding (which I had already redone twice, for the record). First of all, it was coming off already (I forgot to backstitch.)
Second, I used white thread. (It was before I learned about colored threads somehow.)
Aaaaah, much better.
For those of us who are really uptight and detail-oriented, this was a most satisfying blog post. Regular folks might have been a little bored.
