I was able to seam rip this square out while driving up north for my great niece’s baptism.  I took some time to take some of the strips out so I can reuse them in the new block. imga0940

This is a very worn quilt but I am determined to get a little more mileage out of it. Plus I am intrigued by taking it apart and putting it together.

I have to make a new foundation to put these strips back on.

This is the back side where the foundation has worn completely away.

The quilt is warm? When it is all together.
