More quilt rescue

This time it's my youngest DD's quilt.
It's my 1st quilt ever!

I originally made this one for my son before he was born.
it's held up well considering I made it almost 20 years ago! but as you can see it's in pretty bad shape.

best part is she got to pick out all the fabric I used to fix it
and I got it done in 2 weeks as opposed to the tortuous
3-4 patches when I had time.
I think the only remaining original fabric in it is the
original backing that is now the foundation.
it has almost no batting in it but what is left of the older
patches seems to work just as well.

and now it looks almost brand new!
in fact my DD#2 was saying she will have to love it in all over again because its so stiff

(I will update with pictures in a few days)
