April, grandson Jack’s dog, ate a hole in his bed quilt. Deep sigh. This is the dog-eaten hole. Notice the irregular stitches that I used to sew together the tears on either side of the hole.
Follow the progression of the fix in the following photos. It took about 2 hours plus a few miuntes to machine quilt over the patches.
I meant for the patch to blend but not be invisible and that worked. When Jack and I put the quilt on his bed, we almost couldn’t find the patch—but then we found it :-). Jack was as impressed as a nearly 15-year-old boy can be 🤣🤣🤣.
The moral of the story is not to put off this sort of mending. It goes fast and it’s very satisfying.
