Several years ago on a visit to see her she gave me the quilt and requested that I finish it for her. It has been in my "to do" pile since then. With my schedule I have not had time to put this back into a frame for hand quilting, nor do I have the time to hand quilt anymore. Now to my dilema......Several times in the past six months she has stated that she would love to see the quilt finished before she passes away. Now with the events of the last year and half with losing five family members, including my dad, I feel sure that I need to complete this quilt as soon as possible.
So I need your opinions. Below are pictures of the quilt. Beautiful but only 7 blocks have been quilted which is only a 10th of the quilt completed. So what do I do?
- Rip out the hand quilting and put into longarm and get it quilted as soon as possible.
- Put into my frame and quilt on it when I have time and hand quilt it. (hoping that she will live until 90+ years as it will take me at least that long with my schedule)
- Pay a hand quilter to finish the quilt
This is the first and only quilt Alberta ever made. Thanks for helping me decide what to do with this project.
