Quilt Restoration & Repair
Some quilts need a "face lift" as they get older to help them keep going strong for many years. Others need immediate repair because of the age-old excuse, "My dog ate it." (True story.) Whatever your quilt needs can be found at Quilted Lovelies. Contact me for a quote. Below are a few of the quilts I have rescued.
Grandmother's Flower Garden
My grandmother made this quilt for my aunt before I was born. It was time for a little face lift because some of the flowers were coming apart (see below). My grandmother was a master quilter, so no pressure or anything. Twelve of the 72 flowers needed to be replaced.
1940s Kansas Sunflower Quilt
I used a 20s reproduction fabric and hand appliqued the new petals over the damaged ones.
Another Grandmother's Flower Garden
Norman, the Labrador Retriever, took a big bite out of this beautifully vintage Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt.
