Well I managed to get it FINISHED ! Been hanging around WAY to long!! All I had to do was take the old border and binding off; replace the border and bind. I decided I would quilt instead of tying, which is what it was originally. The challenge I had was that the original squares in this quilt were NOT square or even. I had a heck of a time getting this quilt square and flat! Did my best, but it is a VINTAGE top. Thankfully; cross hatching the quilting worked well; as did stitching in the ditch around the borders. Nice to check this off the list.
