We decided to do an all over on it -
One - because she really wanted the fabrics to shine - not the quilting. and
Two - to help ease in the fullness without having to pleat anything ....
and so - I proceeded ;-)
This is it on the machine - the centers were pretty taught - but the edges got a lot rippley.....
I basted lightly so that I had some guideline, and then got to praying
I'm thinking the praying worked
In the whole quilt I only had to take one little pleat,
and after basting it closed - you couldn't even tell
Here it is all finished -
She thinks it will work well!
We used Quilters Dream Cotton Select
In our opinion this is a perfect Batting for these antique quilts
There is No scrim - so it is just soft and drapey
and doesn't wear against the old fabrics
And here is the back
You can see the quilting a little bit better
Added some Whimsey to it ;-)
Look what I found...
I have no idea what I will do with it - and of course there is NO flat on this either
but it looked lonely and so it came home with me...
