SALVAGED TREASURES












The stitched portion



The bits-and-pieces


Look what have I got here!!! Last weekend while I was strolling around a wet market near my hometown I came across some bundle of helpless non-complete hexagon top. The stitched portion was crushed soulessly on a dirty pavement along the street and the bits-and-pieces were scattered amongst some antique objects.

Could I resist not to grab that! I picked up all whatever I saw. Took home and unpicked all the paper templates and dumped them inside my washing machine. I believe that I have saved this precious quilt top (moreover it is a hexagon project) from being mistreated and abandoned amongst the unwanted items for sales........

I was asked to pay only RM3.00 for all those. Oh my...... all those precious materials...... and the person who had sewn that...... the tiny and neat stitches throughout. Try my very best to reconstruct this pieces and I am sure it will turn out to be a lap quilt or maybe a single comforter and it could give warmth to someone..... who need it.
