In my usual fashion I show this weekends mending, the quilts I did not get around to last week.
A quite delightful 19th century flying geese, all sorts of faded double pink calicos and a tiny scale. I had to remove the top and bottom borders, but did not feel so guilty as they had obviously been cut down at an earlier date. I folded the white backing to the front to bind. It is still a little fragile and shattered in parts but I think it works well.
Not quite as successful was the rebind of this very faded 1930s star quilt. I used a traditional English chintz... it was what I had to hand. It does draw attention to the quilting though.
The spare bed needed a much lighter cover (previously used a 70s Laura Ashley duvet set). This 40s woven coverlet, a bit damaged, is not quite right for a simple Canadian cabin, but the weight is right and it will have to do until something else turns up. Fascinating weave....
Lastly, although I am not a landscape photographer I could not resist this Friday night moon rising above the lake.
