If this quilt doesn’t scream Christmas, I don’t know what does! my dear friend, Zenia, gave me this beautiful vintage top. I couldn’t wait to hand quilt it!
The material was quite thin and required a few repairs. It quilted up so nice! I used #5 pearl cotton in a sage green to quilt it.
I used Quilter’s Dream Cotton Request for batting. i was asked if I tested these fabrics for bleeding before I started working on it. I did not. Whether it bled or not, the cried out to be finished. I washed it when it was finished and it didn’t run at all.
It is every bit as soft and cozy as it looks.
I used plain, unbleached muslin one the back.
I came as close as I could to matching the red for the binding. It works well enough.
I love the back!
I so love finishing these old tops! A huge thanks to Zenia for her most generous gift.
Have a great weekend!
