My SIL entrusted me with the repair of her favorite childhood quilt. Items from childhood, quilts and security blankets are all very close to my heart. So I really want to help her preserve this darling quilt the very best I can.
As you can see it has 2 types of damage. It has some seams that have opened and there are also many rips in the fabric. The rips are only in the animal fabric. It must be thinner than the calico.My plan is to use a large zig zag stitch and sew over all the seams. This would close up the open seams and provide more stability to the quilt. I have no idea what to do about the rips. I know I can't replace the blocks or make fabric where there isn't any. I would just like to somehow stabilize the rip to prevent it from getting bigger. Do you have any suggestions? I would be grateful for your input. Thank you!
My SIL's birthday is in October and I'd love to give it to her then. I'm also going to make a little memento with a few color copies of those cute animals. I'll post it when I'm done.
Are you planning your PARTY TIN? Hope so! I'm looking forward to seeing them on Monday.
