This unfinished quilt top was in with the donated fabric we needed to sort at Saturday's gathering of our Victory Quilt ministry.
It looks like it's mostly rayon acetate with some occasional patches of silk. All the patches are rectangular. It was pieced by machine, and then the maker hand stitched a running stitch along the edges of some of the patches.
I'm thinking it could be layered with a cotton backing and fusible batting and machine quilted. I'm wondering if anyone else has tried something like this, and, if so, were there any pitfalls or recommendations. We have no idea who donated it (people frequently just leave things for us), so I doubt that we'll ever know whose work this is, but I'd like to make it into a quilt if that's feasible.
This top is small enough to be quilted fairly easily on a domestic sewing machine.
