After deciding that I just couldn't bear to waste time hand quilting this vintage piece, nor was I about to take the entire thing apart and re-piece it, what next? Laying it out on the carpet it became clear that it would never lie flat, but at least the longer area was mostly contained in the last three vertical rows. After cutting those away, the remainder was down to "only" a two inch difference in length from one side to the other, but it was also now only about 44 inches wide. So, after adding some wide plain brown borders from my stash, here is the resulting top.
There was one additional November NewFO, an Advent banner for church, which was finished a couple days before Thanksgiving. Now, how can it be that I don't yet have a photo? It finished too large to hang anywhere in the house but I'll hopefully get a shot of it next Sunday after service.
One finish to report for November, that being little Zachary's quilt, completed just a couple days before I traveled to see him, along with his big brother and sister!
That's about it for the month. Linking up with Barbara at Cat Patches, where you can see lots of other NewFO's begun during November, and even enter your own. Now, back to meandering through December, and looking forward to hand quilting some gorgeous vintage Mennonite quilt tops I acquired over the last few months. Well, just as soon as I finish the Checkered Past and Bow-Tie quilts that are piled up on the quilting hoop stand.
