I love the Amish style quilts. What can I say.I like to machine piece, and hand stitch where it shows, so the quilt has a hand-sewn affect. I've pieced the top & basted the layers of one king-sized center diamond-nine patch quilt (in use), but that was in Autumn of '07. I rather got use to it unfinished, have been using it this way (basted) and I'm just not sure what to do. Kind of made a bad choice of batting (too puffy for hand quilting, thought I could hand sew through it, but I think I'd rather have done the batting in flannel. So I'm thinking I'll tie off this one, and start another , batted with flannel, so I can hand quilt a lot easier. What would you do? Thanks ahead of time !
