A mending question
Almost 40 years ago, my parents gifted me with an Ethan Allen bedroom set, wallpaper on my bedroom walls, a carpet remenant rug for my 12th birthday. That same year, my paternal grandmother made me this quilt, which matched my room. I notoced thar the edges are frayng, and plan on covering them this Summer either with seam binding or some fabric strips from my stash.
Sadly, one if the front panels (this quilt is comprised of panels sewn together, with solid green inbetween and as a backing) has a visable tear. Question: how would you go about mending it? I am thinking of first reinforcing it with iron on interfacing, then doing a narrow overpatch in a coordinating fabric. This is a nice, heavy, twin sized quilt that we currently use in the Den. Thoughts?
