Rescuing Antique Patchwork

I picked up this antique pillow cover for 50 cents from the thrift store:

It was beautiful (all hand pieced!) and in pretty good condition except for one little spot:

burn (?) mark

I knew immediately that I wanted to rescue it. So . . . a little flower applique and some stuffing and . . .

. . . a brand new throw pillow


  1. Double yeii for the quilt super hero :)

  2. Very nice! I love it that you gave something handmade a new life.

  3. Good save! I love the way the applique turned out, too, it looks great with the original quilting.
