    What about just shadow quilting - so you don't lose any of the blocks ?
    To keep your mind fresh- learn one new thing a day !

    I agree on the Baptist fans if you really don't want to hand quilt..If I was the one making it, I would personally hand quilt it

    I'd use my computized baptist fan. Yeah, lots of seams. It would take a long time, but just slow the machine down. However, the thick seams could cause an ocassional skipped stitch, but nothing major IMHO.

    Would it be better if I hand quilted it? Wondering if I can get it hand quilted ; due to many thickness of fabric in the blocks .Has anyone had problems with hand quilting? top is all hand done...Whew what a job ,had fun though. Tnx for your input.

    This is the back of a Dear Jane quilt. You can see that she kept it pretty simple. I hope to make one this year. How did you chose your fabrics and colors?
