Restoring a Vintage Quilt for Someone

Restoring a Vintage Quilt for Someone

We bought our 100 year old house from a great family who raised four generations here in this house. We have remained friendly over the last two years since taking ownership. The youngest daughter had this vintage quilt made by their mother when she lived here. The black squares were of a weaker fabric and were shredding. I appliqued new black squares over the other ones, and blind stitch around the edges. I also repaired other seams that were falling apart with carefully hidden stitches. It will still be intact but I cautioned her to not "use" it anymore and now hang it from a rack instead. She promised to only use it when she is sick and wants to curl up in her mother's arms, savoring her memory... awwwww
