    maybe you could find a group that would do the handquilting for you, we, as a group do this and our money is donated to the local charities; although we do keep a bit for a pizza day

    I love it. I have accumulated some 30's fabrics but still cannot decide how I want to piece them together. Some are fat quarters, some scrap pieces and little bit of yardage. Hopefully - someday!

    I would stitch in the ditch on the patch blocks and quilt around the flowers. A floral design on the borders, perhaps

    Gorgeous quilt. What was the typical 1930's quilting?

    That is really pretty, maybe a traditional pattern like clamshell or baptist fan might work...
