Maxine had me quilt this antique 9-patch quilt that her mother had made loooong ago, most likely out of her old clothing. Maxine added the 3 outer borders to make it bigger.
I had some issues with the blocks ballooning, so I realised that when quilting them, I needed to somehow spiral my way around the outside and work my way to the middle in order to keep it from puckering. So this rose design was what I ended up doing. It worked out pretty well!
I like a feathered border!
I'm so glad that this quilt is finally finished and can be used and appreciated, and not spend another year in a closet!
