Wedding Ring repairs continue

I have two more pieces to appliqué over holes or shredded fabric, then this is getting a soak/bath!

My Aunt Pat had a chance to look at my progress on her quilt a couple of weeks ago, and mentioned that she should have washed this quilt before bringing it to me. I told her it was good that she did NOT wash the quilt, because judging from the already shredded fabric on both the back and front (the muslin is very fragile, too), it may not have held up to traditional washing.

The last two steps are tying on the false back with perle cotton, then adding a new binding. Then it's going to find it's way back to Oklahoma!
