I have done both, but especially like using packed prints, bc it hides stitching. I do want my back to have colors like front.
Will be piecing in future for larger bed quilts, bc I am learning how to quilt in sections. (book by marti mitchell). I have fibro. and I think this will definitely be better for me.
It's a great book for those interested. Easier than you would think. If you like lap or baby size quilts, It's just like making four or whatever, (she has about 6 different ways to choose from), and putting them together. C
