Quilt RepairJuly 27, 2007
On the bed in the guest room I have a yo-yo spread made by my husband’s grandmother. She died in the mid-1930’s so it has to be 70+ years old. She carefully gathered the edges of all of those circles and then stitched them all together to make a double sized spread.
At this point some of the stitches holding the yo-yos together are breaking. The fabric seems to be holding up OK but the thread is breaking down. So I am carefully sewing them back together. I feel as though Grandma Leta is looking over my shoulder with every stitch. So I am trying to make my stitches as small and invisible as possible!
