    Default Identify this applique pattern?

    Does anyone know the name of this pattern? This quilt is amazing, vintage, all of the hexagons are shredding. Trying to determine the best way to repair so it can be used again. Thanks for any help!Click image for larger version.

    I can tell you how to make it but not it's name. Very pretty though.

    If you replace the hexagons, you might destroy it's antique value. But, I'm not an expert.

    I thought about just appliquéing a new piece over the old hexagons.

    I agree with Vonnie....you might ruin the quilt by repairing it. If you don't care about it's antique value, then fixing it would be no big deal.
    I have a Tulip Quilt that has a tiny rip in one of the tulips....and I would love to repair it, but it was made by my DH Terry's grandmother in 1960. She made each of her grandkids ( my DH & his older brother Michael ) each a tulip quilt. It is hand pieced and hand quilted. This quilt was our wedding present from my DH's grandma....and I really cherish it, and would love to fix it too, although I am hesitant to do that.

    Can you slide a piece of double sided fusible interfacing through the slit and iron it down? if not you might try a super thin coat of fabric glue just to keep it from getting any worse.
    If the hexagons are just fraying around the edges I would try fray check. I got mine at WM. Otherwise replacing them might be the only option if you want to use the quilt. Or you could just leave it as is and hang it on the wall.
