My quilting machine went in the shop yesterday....again! If I were quilting large bed quilts I'd be in trouble, but since I mainly do children's quilts and throws, I can finish them on my DSM. Still, after a couple days of piecing my lower back feels like I've been stuck with an ice pick. Then I do some cross stitch and relax.

I love both, I hand quilt, hand piece, my favorite things to do. Of course I machine piece, but love hand piecing more, but since I can't sit on my behind ALL day, I sew at my machine, among other things so I don't sit all day.

I much prefer to piece than quilt, even though I have a mid arm.
I usually pick away at a quilt always set up on my mid arm while I piece on my domestic. I get a lot more piecing done, as evidenced by the bags of tops I have ready to be quilted.
I had decided not to go the long arm route, but my shoulders are beginning to ache while quilting, so may end up getting a small table long arm. Perhaps that will make me want to quilt more?
