I made this top in 2015, and I loved it so much that I wanted to hand quilt it.  I kept hoping my finger agility from arthritis would improve so that I could do it by hand.  But, alas, it has only deteriorated.  So, I decided if the quilt was going to see the light of day where I could enjoy it; I might as well machine quilt it.
As usual, I'm not satisfied with my machine quilting.

This is my all-time favorite block -- you can read about my journey over the years with the 'Betsey Block' here and here. 
Only two more 'Betsey Block' quilt tops remain unquilted.  Am I on a roll?  We'll see.  If I do machine quilt them, that would mean I could make another top using my favorite block.
The Stats:
