Hello! I am a beginning quilter- I can sew and know the basics and I'm on my way to finishing my very first quilt!
I have the top all but finished (just a few more seams), have batting and a back.
What are people's opinions on getting a quilt longarmed vs. tying it vs. attempting to machine quilt it myself? I'm worried about it bearding on my machine, but I'm open to trying it if it's possible! Then what about finishing the edges?
I have just a few weeks before it needs to be done, so whatever I decide has to be done fairly quickly.
A few facts about the quilt:
All cotton top quilted top
poly batting- not sure of the loft, fairly standard
1-sided fleece on the back
It's for my 2-year old niece, so in theory I'd love for her to keep it forever, so I want it to last and be sturdy for a little girl.
How, at this point, should I finish the quilt? Any ideas?
