    I know of two families who had major house fires started by candles. They are much more dangerous than people think

    Candles are very dangerous and people are way too careless with them.

    So sorry to see a lovely quilt so damaged but what is nice to see is how you are able to save it albeit it seems to be a lengthy process. It would be lovely to see how it will look when its done. Best wishes.

    I can certainly see why your DIL wants it to be saved. It's a beautiful quilt, and because you made it, it must mean the world to her. She will cherish it even more when the repairs have been made. Looks to me like that quilt definitely took all the worst of it and saved their house and them! :wink:

    You are nice for fixing that quilt.

    I'm only allowed to burn a candle on the stove in a proper container for it.

    I only burn jar candles and try to keep them away from anything flammable. Glad to hear the quilt was all that was damaged - they were very lucky! Best of luck with the quilt repair!
