Usually, I patch just up to the embroidery, so the original stitches are maintained. But there were a couple of patches where the embroidery covered nearly the whole fabric, so the owner and I decided that I should replace both.
The worn patch.
This photo became my reference for reproducing the embroidery.
Tracing both fabric shape and embroidery placement.
New red fabric cut out.
Ladder stitching to appliqué the patch.
Tracing paper laid on top, pins mark spacing for embroidery.
Before and after photos of another re-embroidered patch.
The two previous posts have photos of embroidery and fabrics, and the wonderful story of this quilt.
