Finish It Up Friday ~ Maple Leaves

I have a fun finish to share with you this week. This top belongs to a friend of my mom’s. I think it was made by an aunt in the 1970s. She asked me to finish it for her.

The colors in the following photo are a bit more true.

I used a pantograph called Tendril on it. I also bound it by machine. This time, I stitched the binding to the top, then folded it under and stitched in the ditch, catching the binding on the back.

This is what the back looks like. I had to go back and restitch a few spots where I didn’t catch the fold.

She sent a flannel sheet along for the backing. This will be a very cozy quilt!

I hope to get this mailed back today.

Have a great day!

    Is it vintage if it was in style during our adulthood? LOL. (And thanks for the binding comment. Try as I might there are always a couple of places where the stitching doesn’t catch the fold.)

    I do believe that pattern was in Family Circle magazine.
