Yes I did quilt this myself. I stitched in the ditch for the patches and in the large border I stippled. In the smaller border I stitched like a "wave". I'm not the best at free motion. It would be much easier with a large machine. I used a Pfaff Quilt Expression. I think I went through about 12 bobbins of thread! If I ever make a queen or king sized quilt, I will definitely get it professionally quilted by someone.
