I am not going to renew my quilt magazines. Almost all of their featured quilts are machine quilted. I love to hand quilt and I would like to get ideas for hand quilting a quilt. On the cover of a fairly recent magazine, the featured quilt was so full of machine quilting that it had to be stiff as a board. The quilting needs to complement the quilt, not take over it. I spend a lot if time and money on a quilt that I want the focus to be on the whole quilt and not solely on the quilting. I'm sure there are tons of people who will think that I am ridiculous, but those are my thoughts.
