Pink Applique Quilt Problem

This quilt was made by someone in my family on my dad's side. I don't know who or when. It has a few stains, and is not quilted all over. It was washed at some point (not me!) and the basting came out and the batting balled up. My problem is what to do with it? Do I take it apart and try to replace the batting and finish quilting it. Do I cut it up and use the good parts to make smaller items? As it is, it is hanging around taking up space. Help me decide what to do with it!

Thank you!


  1. The pattern and colors are very pretty. I have no idea about quilting or sewing in general.

  2. Take it apart and try soaking it in something that might remove the stains. Depending what you have left you could just redo the batting, backing etc or make into smaller projects. A wall-hanging and cushions might be nice.
