    Here are pics of my oldest granddaughter with her quilt I have made about 5-6 years earlier. She still has pieces of it 10 years later.

    Now THAT is a "thank you" from the heart. She actually shows that she loved it to death. What a sweetheart. And now it's time to cut it apart and make it over.

    I too think you should fix it for her, I've had a few like that, and they didn't want a new one, insisted I fix their loved quilt, I did. You should too. :D

    My Granddaughters quilts were well loved and looked similar...we went to the lqs, picked out material including a piece like I had used in the original and made a 'new' one with the original inside. We're on the 4th covering now! You'd think at 25 and 26, they'd put them away but NO WAY! They even go took them to the hospital when their babies were born.

    My son (31 in May) has one his sister made him when he was about a year old that is in almost that shape - no batting anymore, just squares of cloth in various stages of disintegration. I have three children. My two daughters are 50 and 45.
