Got it pieced, but now have to quilt it. Took 6 months all by hand. It is for my mother. Twin sized. It is English paper pieced.

A friend of mine has dozens of this pattern cut out (just the pieces!) from her mother or grandmother (this friend is in her 70's!!) and none of us can tell her how to finish the quilt... she wants to sew it on the machine if possible - but will settle for hand stitching... hey! maybe I'll offer to work on it for her (hand stitching) and sew on it a bit at a time... can anyone help???
