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.
