I found this cute little hand sewn block in an antique store, and I would like to make it into a doll quilt. The squares are about 3/4 of an inch, but vary a bit, and it doesn't lie quite flat. The stitches are kind of big. Maybe it was the work of a child. I plan to use a thin cotton batt and muslin on the back, but I'm stumped by the jagged edge. Or maybe it would be softer (more flexible if I just backed it with white flannel and omitted the batting? What was the traditional way of doing the edge? I don't want to cut off the points. I'll appreciate any advice! Also, can anyone identify the possible age of the fabric? Thanks!
