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

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.
