Can anybody tell if an old quilt can be repaired? If so what is the best way to repair them?
It would probably be best if you could post a pic to get some more accurate answers. I've heard of vintage quilts being repaired though but need more details.

Being a crazy quilt with the embroidery along the edges of the fabric definitely makes it much more difficult to repair. You would need to redo the embroidery as well.
