This is a quilt that my grandmother hand made. I think it's 60-70yrs old but don't have an exact date. It's in pretty poor condidtion.  I don't think I could repair it but still want to keep it some how. Looking for ideas...

Michelle, I have no ideas but wanted to say what a treasure you have.  I have crocheted doilies that my mother made that make me feel all fuzzy inside when I look and touch them.

The only thing I can think of to preserve it is to do like they do in museums and mount it behind glass to prevent further detrioration.  It is a beautiful old quilt!!!

You could do a search online for options on easy repairs for old quilts.  Here is just one that I found: www.quilthistory.com/repair.htm

This quilt is so pretty that even if it can't be used, it needs to be seen!
