What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience (lots of!) I removed each sue from the background fabric and machine embroidered them to a new background fabric before adding blue borders to each block. It took a while!

Well this seems to be in your blood. I just commented on the nine patch and see you have saved more than one quilt.

Good for you! There is such joy saving the old and creating another new, That will last another few generations
