My husband recently found 6 very old quilts (made by an unknown family member many years ago) in a house that has been empty since 1994. These quilts are in amazing good conditions considering the state of the rest of the house. Some just need minor repairs and others have some large places the mice found them.
Here are my questions:
1) Can I wash them? (They are terribly dirty)
2) If I repair them what good are they?
I made this with Bonnie Hunter's "Bricks and Stepping Stones" pattern (I actually started it before the "Four-Patch Frenzy" tutorial from MSQC came out.) though on a different scale. My four-patches are made with 2.5" strips (so are 4.5" unfinished), and the bricks are 4.5 x 8.5 unfinished.
The quilt is approximately 68" x 68".

If I am posting in the wrong place please forgive me. I just joined. I am wondering how to quilt this wallhanging. I does have steam a seam on it and the squares are small so I do not want to do that much stitching. Just enough so it will keep its shape. Thanks for any help you can give me. I am pretty much a beginner

I've had quite a few PMs asking me when the next one will be starting. So sorry for the delay. But start watching around the end of August.
I'm fine, but all around me is chaos! LOL When do our children stop misbehaving?

The black/white/red cats would have been finished, but apparently my cutting done late one night last week was not real accurate as well as much ripping of miss-placed blocks in spite of a design wall.

Help...I just heard someone say she quilts with darning foot and feed dogs engaged. Can this do damage to the needle or to the shaft of the sewing machine? I seem to remember pulling the material around to get a meander stitch with feed dogs up could harm the machine but don't know where to find if this is something I imagined hearing or the truth. Thanks.
