The quilt I was taking apart is taken apart.
In taking it apart I have discovered that it was not holes in the quilt that the previous owner was trying to fix with the giant tucks she had taken.
The culprit is the muslin used in the blocks.
It is so loosely woven that when the previous owner washed the top (a really bad idea)
all the seams pulled apart.
I have decided to take the individual blocks apart
and replace the muslin with a better quality muslin.
And so the ripping continues.
