Octagon Quilt

Carol found this English Pieced Patchwork Quilt in a
Charity Shop and brought it.
It's edges are unfinished, which is normally the case with
hexagon or in this situation an octagon and square.
People either run out of steam to finish and it is an
on going project or they don't know how to finish it.
The fabrics in this quilt date from the 1940',50's,60's and 70's.
So it is quite a find.
Carol is going to back it with some 1970's fabric to keep the
continuity. It will be a 'bagging', process.
(Put right sides together, seam round and leave a gap,
then turn inside out and sew up gap).
This will then go on her Craft Stall to raise money for Charity.
