Bayla Singer:Judy, I can't tell from the picture -- is there any way to salvage the beloved quilt by applique-ing it onto some soft fabric? That way it would still show the pattern and the fact that it's been well loved.
No, it's beyond help. The photo really doesn't show the extent of wear. nearly every seam is frayed away. But even with the new quilt coming his way, he'll keep this one for those days he needs to wrap up in some comfort.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
