My mother gave me a quilt to fix. My mammaw made it at least 30 years ago and it is starting to fall apart. I zigzagged the binding back on. She gave me the OK to machine quilt it to hold it together (it's a utilitarian quilt) and it seems to be taking to the machine quilting ok, I guess. I think it's pretty cool she'll have a quilt that her mother and her daughter quilted!
