I got up my nerve to trim the blocks (!) and finish sewing the top together. I planned to quilt it by hand; I haven't hand quilted since the 90s so need to practice on something else lol. Should I wait or should I pay a long armer to quilt it? When it comes to my quilts, I'm kind of a control freak and normally quilt my own on my sewing machine (not an option I like for this one).
