Let  me share a picture of the quilt that was brought to me yesterday for repairs.Buehler_1The provenance is unclear, but it is fairly old, made in either Alabama or Mississippi. The quilting stitches are tiny. The fabric that appears to be brown was actually green that faded. The edges are fragile and there are a few torn places (See upper left area where light shines through.)

The challenge is to what is best for the quilt, maintain it’s integrity, and accommodate the desires of the owner. I will post again when there is more to report.Damage on Upper edge
