Vintage Quilt Repair


I had the privilege of repairing this vintage/antique quilt today.

And, I had the fun of informing my customer just how old this quilt could be!  

While I'm no expert on dating quilts, it was pretty clear to me that the top was pieced from fabrics from the 1800's, and that the back was pieced from several feedsacks, so it definitely has some age to it.

It's amazing what this quilt had just been through, including being washed in the washing machine (not even on delicate cycle!) and tumble dried with dryer sheets (cringe!!!), as the owner had no idea how old or fragile her "blanket" was!!
