Hello, it’s Cindy reporting in on a rainy Ohio evening. This post is a continuation of Monday’s blog. Sandy and I are helping a family friend finish some “Vintage Treasures” with sentimental value.
Check out Vintage Treasure #2 (and yes, SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED!)
This top has been machine pieced and it measures approximately 65 x 90. The fabrics are from the 60’s and 70’s…what a trip down memory lane!
This beautiful quilt top came complete with extra fabric (we will probably use for the binding), paper and cardboard templates AND an entire stack of triangles cut out and ready to go!
One of the templates has been re-cycled, clearly from sewing notes! We just love finding things like this!
Bea would like us to add two more rows of triangles to the quilt top. Since they are already cut out, it shouldn’t be too hard!
Here is a view of the side edges:
Here’s where we need your advice! Should we:
A: Cut the side edges so they are straight
B: Leave the edges “as is” and add a bias binding
If you have made a quilt like this, we would appreciate any finishing tips!
