Her grandson's name is Hunter so I thought the pattern was very appropriate To save time I thought I would attach the binding both front and back by machine,using a decorative stitch, I'm really not thrilled with the way it turned out, it seaems to have made the binding feel stiff. I think I will stick to sewing it on by hand from now on.

    maybe a longer stitch length for the top stitching would be less stiff. I too generally machine sew binding to front of quilt and hand sew binding on the back to finish and have great results. But, have done the entire binding on machine as you describe and didn't notice stiffness.
