    Default repairing antique quilt

    I am trying to replace cut out block from my friend's great grandmother's quilt. Some one has randomly cut out 3 entire blocks from the quilt.
    I have been able to recreate the block but how would I join the sandwiched block to the sandwiched quilt. How to cover the raw edges on the front and back?

    Thank you for any thoughts.

    Ok, I am just trying to think out of the box here. My first idea wouldn't work (after I typed it), so erased it. Is it possible to pin baste the sandwich block leaving a seam allowance on all sides (turned under), then had stitch the block in place, and quilt the sabdwich after the block has been sewn in?

    Perhaps applique some sashing on the front and back to cover where it is stitched on.
