This quilt was longarm quilted for the Boys and Girls club’s auction, quilting around each hand painted motif that the kids did created an outline quilt backing.

Before and after of a severely damaged quit shows how some care and addition of applique can bring a quilt back to a usable state.
See more of Carole’s repairs on her blog From My Carolina Home – Well Loved Quilt Repairs. Even severely damaged quilts can be saved! From re-attaching appliques, to reconstruction of tears and holes, almost every quilt can be salvaged in some way. Reasonable rates and happy customers are the hallmark of Carole’s quilt repairs.
PLEASE NOTE – Due to a backlog of work, I am not taking any new repair clients until 2022.
Please understand that what I do is repair damage usually by patching areas that are torn. I can reconstruct edges, reattach appliques and rebind quilts by machine. I can do some patchwork, seam repair and minor applique repair by hand, but I do not hand quilt, and cannot add hand quilting to patches. I no longer take severely damaged quilts that require all handwork. The customer is responsible for supplying all fabrics needed for the repairs.
How to Contact Me for a Quilt Repair – Just send me an email at frommycarolinahome (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject line of Quilt Repair Inquiry and let me know what you need. Please include the dimensions of the quilt, along with four to five pictures of the damage, one overall and several close up. BE SURE TO SET YOUR CAMERA OR PHONE TO MEDIUM SIZE PICTURES. My email will not allow receipt of attachments of several large 5mb pictures all at once. Set your picture size to under 500 kb. I answer inquiries within 24 hours most often the same day within just a few hours, so if you do not hear back from me in 48 hours, please check your spam folder. If I haven’t answered you, it means I didn’t get your email. Please resize your pictures smaller and try again.
