We know from firsthand experience that some of our most cherished possessions are also sometimes the most ragged…they just get so much love! Unfortunately, some of these items get so much use and affection that they end up getting worn down and we’re afraid to use them at all, for fear of them falling apart. Having reached this point with one of our favorite family quilts a little while ago, we decided we needed to come up with a way to breathe new life into it, while still being able to see it and appreciate it every day. Below are seven projects (all very manageable), along with corresponding tutorials, patterns and templates, so all you need to do is get your quilt fabric together and you’ll have a new, special keepsake without losing any of its personal significance!
