Quilting is one of my favorite hobbies. I purchased an old quilt top in an antique store in Minneapolis several years ago. The colors were varied and scrappy which I really like. The border however wasn’t a color I would use so I took it apart and put a vintage-style border on it. The colors are now more ‘me’ and I hand quilted it in a dense pattern which I love. I love the way the light captures the textured fabric. It’s also hiding some of the antique imperfections of the fabric. Anytime I can take something old and reinvent it in a fresh way I’m pleased.
