This is quilt top made by my grandmother at least 50 years ago, if not more. I've been trying to figure out how to finish it in a way that looks right. I originally planned to hand quilt it, but now am considering free motion quilting. What fabric to use for the back is also something to figure out! Maybe a plain white or beige muslin?
Yesterday when I was thinking about this, I imagined my grandmother looking over my shoulder while I worked on it. I'm sure she would approve of anything I come up with, to tell you the truth. She loved so many of the same things that I do..... quilting, gardening, cooking, home life.....
This is a picture of the whole quilt top on a bed.
These are close ups of some of the fabric. Can you see the little Chinese men?
This quilting project is on my 2009 Sewing To Do List, so I better get busy on it or it will be rolled over to my 2010 Sewing To Do List!
