Quilt is all done by hand. The whole quilt was restored. All taken apart, fabric pieces replaced, new back and re quilted. Quilt was made by Grandma, given to grandchild and now the Mother is giving it to her child.

Happy Stitching!!!

Now that's a fabulous heirloom for your family! I can't imagine how much work was put into this restoration, but the results are fabulous! I hope you put a label on it somewhere so that future generations will know the story behind this quilt!

I think restorations are much more difficult then creating a new quilt. You did a wonderful job and I am sure it is much appreciated

I hope you were well paid, so much work! Still looks lovely. I thought you re-quilted by hand, but then the top thread is blue and backside has white thread...... A very nice job.

What a wonderful gift of love and legacy. I have a few oldies, but goodies at my house. My favorite is an almost totally rotten silk crazy quilt from 1903 with all the little specialty embroidery stitches. It has the initials of the recipient, the year completed and the number of pieces in the quilt!
