Green and Purple Quilt Repair

I am doing a few more repairs now, and recently received this one. The main damage was from being folded in one spot for years. Several of the green squares had holes, and one of the purple sections had multiple areas of damage. The owner wanted to be able to use it again. The client …

Well Loved Double Wedding Ring Repair

I decided to suspend my quilt repair service for the time being, at least while this pandemic is escalating. The last quilt I accepted was from a local lady, and I got it from her in early December, letting her know it wouldn't be done until January. So, I finished up the other customer projects, …

Quilt Repair with an Unusual Challenge

This quilt repair was certainly a different sort of challenge.  When the owner sent a picture, I was puzzled as to why a section was just missing, with the binding still intact.  He said that he had taken it to someone for repair, and she cut out the section that was bad.  Then she didn't …

Another Well Loved Quilt Repair

Staying at home most of the time right now gives me a chance to make some headway on the backlog of quilt repairs.  This one was so typical of damage on tied quilts.  The ties just don't hold the layers together well, and the top is often a different size than the back.  In this …

Drunkard’s Path Quilt Repair

Over the time that I have done quilt repair, I have noticed that most of the quilts I receive for repair are tied and not quilted.  This one was like that and really demonstrates how this method really does not hold up to use.  It had the usual splits and fabric tears, and the binding …

Raw Edge Applique Quilt Repair

Bringing a well loved quilt from tatters back to usable is always a gratifying project. Recently this one came to me for some tender care. It is certainly well loved, with three sections ripped through to the back, and the entire binding shredded or missing.  It wasn't quilted, it was tied, which does contribute to …

Another Dog vs Quilt Repair

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, our furry friends can make a mess of a treasured quilt.  This one had been in a closet, but the dog found the door open one day, and began a chewing spree resulting in a lot of damage.  Add to that the wear and tear of a quilt over 60 …
