  1. Advice needed about old quilt

    by , 10-31-2012 at 08:50 AM
    Cleaning out the attic ...do I save it? In need of repair at the very least. The fabric feels almost brittle, disintegrating. Beautiful colors, the backing seems fine.
    You folks are my first inquiry...any advice greatly appreciated.

I did this several times and liked the results. Let me see if I can find any pictures.
