My grandmother made this crazy quilt in the 1970s or 80s using my grandfather’s neckties that she had been saving since the 40s. She gave it to me in the late 1990s and I used it for a while on my bed but soon some of the old silk ties began disintegrating. It’s been sitting in a bureau drawer ever since. I can’t bring myself to throw it away but I also have to admit that I am never going to repair this quilt top or use it again. So I thought I would post a message here and see if anyone wants to take this project on.
Here are some details: the quilt top is gigantic and measures about 8 square feet; the individual squares are approximately 14″. (So big that I didn’t even try to take a picture of the whole thing — this is just one quarter.) It had a horrible heavy polyester backing on it which I had cut off some years ago when I thought that I would take on the repair project. Some of the squares are still in very good condition, while others are not. (One possibility is to cut the squares apart and reassemble the good squares into a quilt that you could use as a wall-hanging.)
I am offering this quilt top to anyone who would like to take it on. I only ask that you pay the postage via Paypal. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work out the details.
