A relative regifted me this quilt when I graduated from Notre Dame. The bright blue never went with any of my bedroom schemes, so I used it inside a duvet or with the plain backing side up- a matelasse sort of effect. I wa originally going to rebind it, but realized I had enough scraps to appliqué over the blue. I have about 30 hours of work to finish it.
I am also expanding what was a twin hand pieced duvet into a queen.
It's slow going- I haven't done much sewing since I learned to knit in 2008.
