Week 12 – May 6 – 12, 2012 – Finish That Quilt

This is a quilt top I purchased on eBay for about $10.  I bought it with the idea of using it to practice quilting on my quilting machine – which I did.  However, I did add the outside borders first since it was SO out of square.  It’s hand pieced and had several puckers and gathers in it so it was a real challenge to quilt, but it turned out nicely.  Once it was quilted, I couldn’t decide what to do with it.  We really didn’t need another lap size quilt to keep in the living room (I have a stack) and I didn’t know of anyone who wanted a “practice quilt” (if you’re ever interested in purchasing a practice quilt just let me know) so I did the next best thing … see next week for the result.
