My mother was about to throw out a quilt made by her grandmother because some of the pieces were in tatters. I looked closely and discovered that it was the same material that had worn out wherever it appeared in the quilt and that the rest was sound.
The quilt is a Lone Star pattern - lots of diamonds. I know these aren't for beginners to make. But I wonder if I could fix it myself by appliqueing diamonds on top of the worn out pieces? Is that tremendously difficult? I have a local store that sells 30's style material.
Any advice appreciated. The store said that I should get it professionally fixed, but I'd rather do it myself. Would that be a tremendous mistake?
Thanks for suggestions.
