My mom gave it to me to fix, but the fabrics that were used were scraps of clothing and didn't hold up well. It was washed and played with too much.
I am a firm believer in using quilts. I'd rather see it loved and used than safely stored in a drawer. So today I started to "remake" my great-grandmother's quilt. Here are my beginning blocks.
I'm using scraps for the 4-patch blocks and a simple print for the alternate blocks. I even have the red solid fabric for the backgrounds. I plan on using the quilt on the couch as a cuddle quilt.
My great grandmother's quilt was loved until the early 1980s when it was retired, but it had 20 years of love. Once I make the "replacement" quilt, do I dispose of the old one?
Part of me says let it go... part of me wants to cut it apart and salvage the blocks I can.
What do you do with vintage "loved to death" quilts?
