Well it's been quite a while since I last posted (again!). My New Year Challenge was this very sad Durham Quilt found in an attic when I was helping a friend to empty her father in laws house.
The quilt had been used to cover a large hinged loft hatch and was nailed to it. It was grubby and the sun had rotted the exposed side (attic had windows). All the edges were very worn. I had the idea that it could be saved somehow and perhaps made into something else so took it home with me. First job was to wash it, which made the bad side even worse, the fabric almost desintegrated
