I completed the outer ring of this quilt top this morning. It is 45" square, which might be a good size for a baby quilt. As I try to imagine how to quilt it, I can see that the large muslin areas would be a good place for some decorative/impressive quilting. But that's not something I'm much good at. I'm going to lay this aside for a day or two to decide if I'm going to try quilting it myself, or hand it on to someone else.
Now for a change I'm looking at this problem:
Two examples of the edge of my daughter's quilt, made in Oakland, CA in about 1972 -- my very first quilt ever. I found it at her house with this "eaten" edge. I'm going to re-bind the quilt, and make a few other "corrections".
Clearly I had turned over the edge of the backing and made it the front binding. It is very puffy, and as I ripped out the seam, I found out why:
DOUBLE batting! Well, what did I know back in 1972? Not much.
So this is my afternoon project ; opening up that seam, cutting off the excess and re-binding with fresh but matching fabric.
And listening to Don Giovanni on NPR from Houston Opera.
