And this week, that is exactly what I am doing.
This one is a bit different because the top (hand pieced) really should have a border added. But because the fabric is vintage, I feel that adding a modern-day fabric to it would be an injustice.
Do you feel the same?
The quilt top is full of imperfections, stains and some damage but the customer doesn't care! She just wants it to be finished so that her kids have an heirloom from their Grandmother.
There is something charming about this quilt... I am using an 80/20 batting so that when it is finished and washed it will have a wrinkled "Comfy, old quilt" look. I am doing a black binding. Watch for the finished quilt :)
Can someone who has a better knowledge of fabric give me an idea of what era this is from?
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
