I acquired this quilt a while back, and absolutely fell in love with it:
However, it is so badly damaged, I'm not sure how to fix it!?!?!? Or if I should even try?????
I cannot bear to cut it up to make something else useable with it (while I love the idea that Christina did, I don't have a laptop and it makes me just sick to my stomach to think of myself cutting this quilt top up.)
Fortunately for me, the damage seems to be limited to the setting squares - I'm thinking maybe some white muslin that I was a million times and just applique new squares over the ruined ones (there are 3 or 4 ruined setting squares that I can find - and a few loose seams that I can fix). The quilting design looks like a simple flower, I think I can duplicate that.
I know the family history on this quilt, and know it was once loved, which may be adding to my reluctance to cut it up and repurpose it, but....
This quilt will never be used, but I am a sucker for anything old so. .. . . there you go.
Anyone have any suggestions?
P.S. by the way - it is freaking hot here - 94 degrees and high humidity
