I am ready to finish a quilt that I would like to enter into quilt contests. The quilt blocks are hand appliqued and tedious. I would like to machine quilt the sashing and border using my Singer machine and then hand quilt around the appliqued blocks and larger sections. Is this a no-no to use both machine and hand quilting on the same quilt?
I will take the quilt to my first book signing for my Bible storybook, The Creation, this Saturday (2 days away). If I have to carry it with pins in it I will, but would rather have the sashing stitched so I could remove the pins. But I don't want to ruin my chances to get awards on it later.
