Orderly top, disorderly border
If you do this, do not show it to a quilt historian. Her eyes will google around in her eye sockets and she will start murmuring "orderly center, improvised border, orderly center, disorderly border....." and you will have to confess that you caused that, not the long ago top maker.
This quilt measures 79" x 82". The little nine-patch squares are 1" square. Rosie Mayhew patiently did the machine quilting - I learned a lesson about attaching borders to a bias top with this. I had it quilted so I could use it, it is going on my bed now! Here's the back............
