Many, many years ago I made a baby quilt which for some reason I decided to hand-quilt. Don't know why; I was never that much of a fan of hand-quilting, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. It was actually an experiment in quilting without a frame or hoop, the first time I had tried it. (And by the way, if I ever have to do hand-quilting again I will do it hooplessly.)
I quilted maybe two thirds of it and got tired. The quilt has been lurking about since -- OMG -- 1990; I know this because of the neatly embroidered motif in the corner.
So I bundled it up and gave it to my friend Ann for her guild's charity quilts. I suspect somebody in that guild will be happy to finish the quilting. And my stitches were nice and small, so if that somebody is a quilt snob she shouldn't be too ashamed to collaborate. Maybe she'll neatly embroider her initials in the other corner.
