Maple Leaf Medallion Quilt

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well.
I've had a busy week.
But, I did get some sewing done.
First, I adjusted 6 pairs of pants and a winter coat for my mother-in-law.
She lost a lot of weight, but didn't want to spend a fortune on new clothes.
So, I offered to adjust them for her.
This was the first time, I did a full adjustment on pants.
I adjusted the full length of the legs, the crotch, and waist.
I was so surprised at how well I did.
You couldn't even tell that they were adjusted.

I also added another border to my Maple Leaf Medallion Quilt.

I really like how this scrappy quilt is coming along.
I've designed the next border and hope to get it done this weekend.

And congrats on the tailoring work! Tricky to tailor clothes to fit and keep the basic shape and style!
