Of course, you could see the stitches on the front of the quilt, but I was wondering how many quilters do it all by machine, or if the hand stitching is preferable. I know there are no "quilt police" lol, but I still want to know what the general consenence is.
    I every once in a while like to sew on the binding like I normally would and then do a decorative stitch to bind it to the other side. (Sew to back and bring to front.) Especially cute when done with a variegated thread! I just finished my son's Christmas present scrappy quilt this way and he loved it!

    All by machine & definitely use the walking foot to do it with! Way easier with the walking foot.
