HI...I just got done Hand Tying a quilt and found out I like doing it.
Now I have 2 questions because I machine pieced the quilt. I don't know if machine piecing makes a difference but I figured the more you know about the flannel quilt the better. Also flannel both sides and cotton batting used.
The top is a panel but the backing is pieced (or vice versa). A tie in center of each simple pieced square.
First: Do I need to SID after Hand Tying? If I do...I would have never hand tied. I thought I was skipping that part by tying. Besides...I wanted to try my hand at tying a quilt.
Second question concerns the border:Can I hand stitch close to the seam of the border or do I need to do the SID for the border? My hand stitching would certainly not be like the hand quilting I see on the beautiful quilts that are hand quilted. There is only 1 border on the quilt before I add the binding. I hope you understand this 2nd question.
I know what I mean...just can't put it into words for some reason.
Thanks so much for your help.
