Calling all quilters!

Calling all quilters!, originally uploaded by Theorris.

Anyone know of any quilters out there who could restore my poor, messed-up quilt? I would just chuck the thing, but my now-deceased mom made it for me to take away to college. It has been falling apart for the past few years now, but, you know how it is. I can't part with it. So my only recourse is to store it somewhere (and what is the point of that?) or have some handy quilter fix it.

I have fond memories of my mom setting up her quilting frame in the back yard the summer before I left for the East coast, working diligently for a month in her off time to complete it. I know she would never have articulated it, but it was her way of sending something of her with me on my journey.

This thing has seen me through a big portion of my life.


  1. CLint, that is dear.

    Why don't you just cut some fabric (Clothing) in squares and sew them on the places that are bare it could be a very funky refurbishing.

  2. Hmm. I don't know nothing about no needles and thread. When I visit Ft. Collins, I'll bring the blanket with me and you can have a hey day!
