I had recently been given an unfinished quilt top that was found in an attic that was pieced by my SIL's grandmother. My SIL is THE best aunt to my children, and I'd love to finish the top for her. I wondered if anyone had any advice first of all, how old this top may be (it sure is bright!), secondly, how'd you suggest quilting it (pattern) & the technique (machine or hand quilted). It's a very long & skinny top, and I was thinking about maybe adding white borders to try to even it out a bit.
