Repairing an old Quilt by Hand

Pin It
This is Husband's fishing quilt and it needed some 
HELP.

After it's last wash it just seems to fall apart !  I try to fix them, the owner of the quilt in our family will usually not give their quilt up !

Laying out each place to repair

Pinned it really good

And used applique stitches, by hand.


They were all on seams, fabric becoming weak? 
I think just YEARS of use.
