    Howdy all! Semi-Newbie here!

    Hi. My name is Vicky. I'm currently residing in sunny California, and I'm pretty new to quilting. I recently inherited an heirloom quilt, and I want to rehab it the right way. I do have a pretty solid foundation in sewing, pattern-making, etc.

    I have one kid, an 8 y/o boy. I've been sewing since I waas about his age lol. I also do other geeneral crafting, with an emphasis in cold-process soap making and leather work.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Can you post a picture of it? If it is truly heirloom quality and just needs minor repair then that’s one thing. If it is passed saving as a quilt, that’s another thing.
