    Her new husband didn't know any of the history of the quilt ? It is a work of art - can't wait to see how you finish it :mrgreen:

    I don't know what to do with it because it has the already quilted backing on it..so if i were to quilt around anything it would not look good with that backing... i have never had one like this before...lol

    Very interesting quilt, and very large. All you can really do is stitch around the squares and bind it.

    the sq are all stitched around.. so I too thought I could only bind it at this point and leave it at that.

    very lucky that you get to help create the history of that quilt. Does it look like it's telling a story or is it a lot of things you think the person before you liked and thought were pretty? just wondering. Looks like you could have tons of fun finishing it up with you ideas.
