This is an antique adaptation. It is drawn small since my friend Evelyn wanted one measuring 14 x 20. Below is a back view with the gathered edge cotton binding. Looks tidy don't ya think? There are a few puckers but much nicer than seeing folds. Eventually I think the cotton binding will soften out and puckers won't be noticed. Besides, it will be underneath anyway.
This drizzly day I did some hooking on 1909 Horse but happily had another pattern order to do so that will ship tomorrow. It is a smaller size (28 x 40) for this design.
