    I still have to do the binding...
    I have absolutely no idea when I pieced this - probably in the early 90s... I do know that I don't have ANY fabric scraps from these old quilt tops so I'll have to come up with something for the binding.
    I have ANOTHER dresden plate in there in blocks - haven't decided what to do with it yet..... and then I think ONLY one more top that I'm not really going to worry about because it isn't put together very good - I may take it apart and salvage the blocks because they are ok....

    This is one of those quilts that you are really glad to have finished! :evil: I used some fat batting (trying to get it used up too) and by the time I got to the end the roll was almost too big for the Bailey....

    Another one done freehand and I actually kind of like the way the back turned out - I'm not fanatical about things being perfect and it sure doesn't look like the machined ones we saw at Cracker Barrel - done on a computerized machine I'm sure.....
