Take a Look Back --- "Reconstruction Projects"

This is part of a series of posts titled:  "Take a Look Back". I am celebrating 10 years in the long arm quilting business. (And 10 more to come!)

---------------------------------------------

Reconstruction Quilt Projects

Do you have an old quilt that you would like reconstructed?

 Make it a new quilt!

In this post, I will be sharing some before and after pictures of a reconstruction quilt project, that I have completed several years ago. Since I did not date my photos in the early years, I am going to guess that this project was from 2004.

I want to emphasize that this is reconstruction, not restoration project! These reconstruction projects prove that even the rattiest quilts, which you might have fond childhood memories of, but are tucked away in a closet have the potential to be "recrafted" into beautiful new reconstructed quilts.

The Before Pictures:







Taking the quilt apart.






Starting to machine quilt the quilt!




After Photos: 
The finished reconstruction of the vintage quilt with machine binding!










Just a note:  I am taking a look back at quilts and quilt projects from the past 10 years.  This is the best full view photo I could find.

I am going to have fun taking a look back over the past 10 years of my long arm quilting business.  I hope that you will enjoy it too!

Taking a look back!
Marcia
