Hi everyone! Cindy reporting in from steamy Ohio. I’m enjoying the air conditioning and looking for new quilting projects.
One project I’ve considered is restoring a quilt I bought at an antique store for approximately $30.00. I love this quilt as it uses fabrics from the 30’s and most of the colors have remained vibrant.
Reds from older fabrics can fade out over time but these polka dots are still going strong!
This black floral fabric looks almost like new.
Regarding restoration…a lot is needed! Approximately 1/3 of the machine bound edges are frayed.
There are several holes in the front and in the back.
Frayed edges abound and some of the hand quilting is coming undone.
Bottom line: I love this quilt but I think it is beyond repair.
What about you?
Do you have an old quilt that you love beyond repair?
