On a recent trip to England my friend Rae was given this beautiful antique quilt. As you can see, it’s magnificent! The silk hand-pieced blocks glow on their black background, and many are still in very good condition.But dozens of the tiny pieces are either threadbare or have disintegrated completely. So Rae (and her willing friends) faced a dilemma. Should the quilt be restored? And if so, how should this be done?
