    I 'd probably hand tie it, as it looks old fashion to me, but then, I'm not into hand quilting or machine qwuilting yet. Not that good!LOL

    What you are comfortable doing? Either way would be fine.

    They are all hand sewn? There is no way I would have sold hand sewn blocks on ebay or anywhere. I think I'd rather see it quilted, even echo quilting would be wonderful.

    How is your son doing? Haven't heard anything in awhile.

    I'd tie it with red or yellow yarn.
