This antique Durham is gorgeous, look at the quilting !
The problem was it had raggy frayed edges otherwise great.
I am reluctant to just bind them and machine the edge , I prefer to unpick far enough back and cut back the batting so you can fold over the edges and hand sew them down.
The result I think you will agree is much more pleasing and often hardly discernible.
It has taken me 12 hours up to now, I just have to stitch down two sides it is all pinned.
So now you know how I have spent my Boxing Day !!
very satisfying now I am on the home straight.
