    All this quilt needed was some "Tender Loving Care". This is a friends quilt that was made in the 70's by her and her mother. Her mother passed away shortly after. She asked me to help preserve this quilt. It came to me worn thin, spotted and tied. It has new backing, batting and heavily quilted with feathers. Just need to put on the binding. Hope she likes it!!!
