New life for an old quilt

Standard

My grandmother made and gifted me this quilt in 1970. It has seen nearly constant use since then. I really love this tumbler pattern and the fabric memories in this quilt. Most of the fabrics come from family clothing.

Date (19)70 and Grandma’s initials RW

Recently, I noticed the already worn edges had begun to tear! Off to the sewing room!

I trimmed the edges and found fabric for a new binding. I think Grandma would approve!

In progress!
Finished binding—good match I think!

I wonder if this quilt will last another 52 years!
