    I inherited 2 top pieces of quilts and I don't know how to go about finishing them. I will need someone to guide me along to finish both of these. One is about the size of double bed size and the other is maybe a Queen size. Please help me out and get these 2 projects complete. Thanks for all of your help and instruction.

    Welcome to the quilting board. This is a great place to get help and for conversation and to make new friends. Post pictures of your quilt so we can see and be a better help as to how to quilt.

    Welcome from Missouri.
    I'm fairly new to this site, I love reading all the tips and info you ladies give. If you have the finshed tops then you are ready for backing and quilting, right? Or do they need borders too?
    It's always so neat to 'inherit' a top.
    A lady at church gave me a partially finshed top. It's in a pizza box waiting to be finished. I finished a table topper with four blocks she had given me.

    Welcom to the board. There are a couple of ways to finish them. Depending on what you decide will guide what batting you want to use.

    These are pretty large quilts to start with. You may want to do a practice piece first on your method of choice. Could be a pillow top, wall hanging or table runner/placemats.

    Machine quilt, yourself or hire someone to do it. Suggest you get a walking foot for your machine to do this but not totally necessary.

    Hand quilting. Needs the least investment in equipment but will take some time to complete.

    Hand tying. This is you use ties to hold the 3 layers together. Easy and doesn't take very long or much skill.
