The father passed away a couple of years ago. This daughter's very thoughtful mother and sister had me fix it up as her birthday gift.
In some places, I could just close open seams. In others, I had to patch on new fabric because the open seams had frayed too much to close. I also replaced missing ties.
Happily, my very full sewing room contains a basket of denim scraps, the best bits salvaged from worn out jeans. I keep them to patch the knees of my jeans, but this time they had a much more important job to do!
As if family memories didn't make this quilt cozy enough, it's backed in flannel. And for me, it's especially nice, since this has always been my favorite tartan plaid.
