So I decided to hand quilt this top next.
I made a backing from appropriate vintage fabrics and loaded it up.
But I just couldn’t move ahead. Sigh…..so here I am taking the top apart. It wouldn’t lay flat. Not. At. All.
You can see why above. The blocks vary a bit in size…… I decided to take the blocks apart, square them up and sew it back together. This quilt maker has her quirks. See the patch turned outside in?
Do I take the 9 patches apart and redo those? She handpieced with huge stitches and very course thread (string?).
I picked this thinking it would be quick and easy…..I should have known.
Have a great day!
