Last week after I posted pictures of my quilt falling apart after it had been washed and dried, Mary emailed me and said she thought the rips could be fixed! Today I went into Sew to Speak while she was working and she helped me fix it. She suggested that I might want to go back through and add more hand stitches with the perle cotton and I do think I'm going to take her advise. Hopefully that will help toughen up this quilt! Below I have attached a picture of the worst rip that needed to be fixed. I can't thank Mary enough for all of her help!
