If you are thinking about quilt repair, consider the following; what is the quilt’s overall condition, does the quilt have historical value, what does the quilt mean to you, how do you plan to use the quilt. Quilts can be repaired, restored, or conserved. The following is a high-level explanation of the differences.
“What is the difference between repair, restoration, and conservation? Repairs simply fix the quilt. Replacing a binding with modern fabric or machine mending fraying fabric is a repair. Restoration returns the quilt to a useable state. It still may not be perfect, but it won’t have
holes or areas of torn fabric. Normally fabric of the same age and wear pattern is used, although appropriate reproduction fabric may work in a pinch. Conservation preserves the quilt intact. Damage is stabilized so, it doesn’t get worse, but nothing is done to the quilt that can’t be undone.”
