  1. Carole restored my grandmother’s quilt beautifully. No one else would touch it, but all it needed was some appliques restitched and a corner reconstructed. You cannot tell where the repairs are!! Very pleased.


  2. Beautiful work. I’m trying to repair my friend’s great grandmother ‘a quilt but people cut out entire blocks top, batting and backing. I have been able to recreate a block to fit in the spots but now I don’t know how to join them together since front and back have raw edges. Wondering if you have any thoughts. Thank you
