My job at the thrift store definitely has benefits! Look at this beautiful hand-pieced, hand-quilted quilt that came in on the truck this week. Only one problem...it looks like it had a run-in with a pair of scissors at some point in its life. I couldn't bear to see it sold as a cutter quilt, so I brought it home to try my hand at restoring it. I know it's going to be next to impossible to match the fabrics, so the question is...shall I try to find a fabric that matches closest to the color and not worry about whether it is a print or solid or should I try to keep solids and prints as they are even if the shade is a little different?
