I have pieced a quilt for the daughter of a friend who is getting married next month. I usually hand quilt, but with the shortage of time, decided to machine quilt this one. I have done a few baby quilts on the machine, but not a big one, and I am having problems. I am using an embroidery stitch on part and the top stitch is showing on the bobbin, my free motion quilting is very bad, my machine throat is small, and the whole things is just making me cry.
Do I take everything out and hand quilt and give it to her when that is finished a year or so from now? Do I tie the quilt? Would someone else be able to quilt it for me without costing me an arm and a leg?
Thanks for any advice.
