My vintage Boston Commons quilt is completely finished. The binding and label are on. The best news is the red/pink bleeds washed out. I first blogged about this quilt in the July 12th post this summer, three months of quilting are reasonable.
I had some solid turquoise fabric which worked perfectly for the binding.
One of the corners was really short, it curved in. I tried to straighten it a little by cutting my binding 3" wide. The binding on the back of the quilt is 3/8" while on the front it is 1". This covered a lot of the uneven edge of the quilt and it really helped this spot.
Across the center the quilt measures 71-1/2" by 72-1/2" but when I fold it, the corners don't match.
This white center sashing was the section that was puckered the worst.
For now the quilt is draped over the Grace quilting frame, I love looking at the texture.
I need to replace the cloth leaders on the quilting frame with real ticking. The fabric I had on there isn't ticking and I have a problem with it pulling out of the rod. Ticking is a heavier fabric and should be more stable.
I had hoped blue Stars in the Garden would be the next quilt in the frame but it will take me awhile to applique those borders. A crib quilt will be next in the frame.
