    Here are tops that I have made for my three grandsons. Not sure if I want to try to quilt myself (which would be a first) or have them quilted by someone who is experienced.

    Here is the middle grandsons quilt. The back will be the same chocolate brown as the one inch border.

    they're awesome!!!

    i think you should quilt them yourself. you have to learn sooner or later and these tops are simple enough to learn on.

    you could do a stitch in the ditch around the blocks.

    buy a walking foot for your machine and save yourself hundreds of dollars and get a jump on a skill you'll have to learn anyway.

    Here is the funny part. I have a long arm machine but I don't know how to use it. How ironic.....
