Rag Bag Quilt Top Repair

Working on the Rag Bag Quilt Top today!  Replacing and sewing over fabrics with damage.  I dipped into my civil war reproductions stash to find some close matches, and pieces that would go with the existing fabrics.

Like all of my projects I simply can’t refrain from adding pieces of Minick and Simpson fabrics.  Both of these fabrics worked great with the look of the quilt.
