    Sorry that I have been so late in posting, but we have not had an internet connection for awhile. Thanks everyone for your posts. I can see that hand piecing might not be popular, but neither is it dying out. That is encouraging!! Hand piecers, let's keep up the relaxing work. :)

    I have always hand pieced. I only learned to machine piece this past year.. although I sew garments by machine I have also made them (garments) by hand. I do a bit of both now as I've developed rheumatoid arthritis and so I machine piece when it's giving me a fit. Some patterns (D9P) for instance have to be machine pieced.
