Gaga quilt restoed (closeup)

This is just a closeup of the restored quilt and the initial that was embroidered on it. I bracketed it with the feather stitch to stay in the basic "flavor" of the original quilt. All the embroidery on this piece was redone as the thread on the original was disintegrating, pulled or missing. I tried to match the color as best I could, but chose to use a perle cotton instead of the stranded floss to help with wear.

A treasure saved for the future.It is always amazing to see how they managed to sew all those irragular pieces together.
