Any quilters out there?


A few weeks ago I was cleaning out my laundry/craft storage area when I started going through an old box of my Grandmother's patterns.  (Mostly quilting patterns with a few other types of patterns thrown in.)  I remembered seeing one of the quilts that I found the pattern for and I knew I had it somewhere in the house.  Well last night I found it in a different storage area.  We're getting ready for a yard sale and are going through everything in the house.  Anyway...the quilt is torn on the left side corner.  I was wondering since I'm not a quilter but I really want to preserve this what I could do to fix it.
I've had this for a long time, but sadly never noticed until last night that my Grandma Jo put the date when she finished this onto the quilt,  14 January 1941.  So if any quilters out there would like to give me a little advice as to what I can do to fix this I would really appreciate it.  Thanks in advance for any help.

I'd love to be able to quilt...that is a lovely one, I don't have any advice about repair except to take it to a seamstress. I hope you get it fixed. xx
