Carole does some quilt restoration work on well loved quilts with sentimental value.  If you have a quilt that needs repair, Carole might be able to help.  Some of the repairs made by hand include this rabbit that was coming apart around the stitching.  Here is the before and after –

She constructed a quilt for a fellow nurse from blocks left to him by his grandmother.  The blocks were squared up and some borders added to make them all the same size.

A border was added, then it was quilted.  Alex was very pleased with the final result.
