One of my goals for May was to finish this vintage log cabin top that Mr. Wonderful gave me for Christmas 2013.
I removed lots of frayed snarls from the back! I decided to quilt a random grid across the top like I did with my vintage cheddar top. It has a few tiny tucks here and there but overall, I am quite happy with this finish.
As you can see, my lines are not evenly spaced. I eyeballed them and quilted them freehand. If this top were perfectly pieced, all the pink squares would line up. As you can see, they are not even close! So perfect spacing of quilting lines would emphasize the imperfection in the piecing.
I used a plain white for the back and a solid navy for the binding. I looked at this top in the same antique shop for years before it became mine. I am so glad it is now finished!
