Lonestar repair done

Remember this quilt?  (you can click on any photo to enlarge it)

I wanted to refurbish it to use as a tablecloth.

During the Olympics, I glued the replacement diamonds on.  Then I stitched them all down with a small zigzag,  made new binding and added it.  And washed and blocked the whole thing.

Before:

After:

And now, in use.

It was worth the effort.

    Just gorgeous. I love what you have done with it. I have an antique tumbling blocks (done in silks) that needs the same treatment. I’m not sure how to go about it, but you have given me some pretty good information & technique tips. I love looking at your picture, that quilt is just beautiful – thanks! And – thank you for rescuing the quilt, such a labor of love.
