Finish Quilt

1.    Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste.

2.    Quilt as desired. This vintage quilt was hand-quilted with four anchors in each setting square and one anchor in each setting triangle. Stars were hand-quilted in the corner triangles and each block has outline quilting in the white pieces (Quilting Diagram).

3.    Bind with solid white binding strips.
