  1. 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


  2. I was so pleased with the repairs done to my quilt! It looks as good as new. Everything was matched so well with the original pattern that even I had a hard time picking out where the repairs have been done. Excellent work!!!


  3. It’s here! It’s stunning! You did such a fabulous job. Thank you so so so much! Oh my goodness. It’s impossible to tell which are original or replacements and I bought the fabric! You are an artist. I have already sent your contact info to six women with vintage quilts needing help. I cried when I opened the box, Carole, words fall short. Thank you.
