    Does everybody "finish" the quilts?

    I don't have a long arm and my version of quilting is very, very, very pitiful...I would definitely not want to try it on a quilt yet. So do I send the tops & backs as they are? I just don't want donations to become a burden instead of a help...

    I finish mine. Since they are small quilts, a decorative or stitch in the ditch should be more than adequate. I've used a serpentine stitch diagonally at times.

    Because of weight in shipping, you may want to hear directly from Marilyn and maybe just send the top and backing, then money for batting. I know that she has finished some tops that have been given to her.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

      Well, for some reason I can't thank your post Sandy, so thank you!

        Most people send finished quilts. I do however receive tops that need to be finished in to quilts. At the forum retreat last year, several people sent tops home with me. At that time I also brought home with me 2 big rolls of poly batting that had been purchased for charity quilts that were possibly made while there. I am currently working on those. That being said, I still have had to furnish the backs, and if I wanted borders, I put them on out of my stash. I am just glad I have the fabric to do that without buying more.
        If you don't feel comfortable making the entire quilt, please feel free to send the top to me, and I will get it finished. I am just grateful for everything I get, whether I need to finish it or it comes to me already finished. God Bless you for wanting to contribute to my cause. Hugs, Marilyn
