Vintage Quilt with bias binding
Friends from a local thrift shop called me when this beauty arrived. Someone dropped off their grandmother's unfinished quilt tops and blocks and I was blessed to get all of them!
Ruler work created unintended secondary circle designs that are wonderful in these blocks.
True feed sack and vintage fabrics complete this work of art. Blocks with newspaper templates that arrived with this top date back to WWII and even have articles specifically discussing the war. Amazing finds!
This is my first bias binding, and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be!

This is beautiful! I just found a quilt top like this at an antique shop - also feedsack, but with yellow. I'm planning to finish it. Good to know that the binding was easier than you expected. Tutorial/tips to do the binding on the curve? Also, do you know the name of the pattern?
