Would you throw this quilt away? Someone did, but luckily it was spotted by someone else who understands the work and skill that went into creating it! For the rest of the story check out this article which was posted on our team thread today: Dump Quilts
I've seen lots of quilts in very poor condition, but would never, ever advise anyone to just throw one away! There are lots of projects you can make out of even the most worn and shabby quilt. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for preserving what can be preserved, but a threadbare and worn quilt can live a second or third life in another form also. They can be made into pillows, vests, teddy bears, coasters, the sky is the limit. If all else fails, I'm sure there is a crafter or quilter who would be more than happy to take that quilt and love it for the love that was put into it in the first place!
