One of my goals in the next few weeks is to try to rescue this quilt. I found it in an old trunk after my mother in laws death. Everything on the quilt that was made of good sturdy cotton is still in tact. Everything that was made of this flimsy gingham material is now in tatters.
My thought is to take the quilt apart and try to remove the stars, set them on a solid square and applique and then reattach to the existing quilt backing and cotton batting and then re quilt. Any quilter out there have any suggestion I would love some input.
Let this also be a lesson to those of you new quilters. ALWAYS use good heavy quality cottons or cotton blends. This is especially true if you are recycling clothing for quilt tops.
