Save this old quilt
This is an old quilt that my Great-Grandma made (I'm not sure when). I found this in her attic about 18 years ago, and it's been sitting in my closet ever since.
When I found it, it had holes in some of the squares & others are wearing thin....you can tell it has been used & washed often.
It's a small quilt-probably about twin size. It's hand pieced & stuffed with old nylons (the thigh high ones without elastics!).
My question is- I want to save this, but am not quite sure of the best way. I was thinking of taking it apart-gently!- and re-stitching the good squares into another quilt (like a 9 patch). Or is there a better way?
Any opinions? Suggestions? Ideas?
