    This is beautiful and I love the fact that you are piecing a vintage pattern. It will be absolutely gorgeous when you finish--well, it is already, but even more so when complete!

    It is beautiful! You are doing a wonderful job. Please don't put yourself down just because it is taking you longer than it took your neice. As far as I know, you two weren't having a competition...So just smile and keep working on your beautiful quilt. Pretty soon it will be completed!

    Just saw another post on this quilt pattern. I think I may have finally found what I want to make for my bed. I've never done one this big from start to finish. I have a question. Is there a difference to the warmth of the quilt when you machine quilt as opposed to hand quilting? I hand quilted a top my grandmother pieced and it just has a warm feel to it. When I've seen the machine quilted quilts on here, they look so beautiful and more decorative than I could do by hand but it just seems like all the stitching is so close together that it would lose some of it's ability to keep you warm. What do you think?

    It may take you a while but it will be worth it by what we've seen. Beautiful quilting.

    Because I'm handling the material so much as I move the hoop and do the quilting, the quilt has become quite soft. The machine quilted ones I've seen seem to be a bit less flexible maybe because the fabric hasn't been scrunched and manipulated as it is put down, taken out of the hoop, repositioned and picked up and plopped down on my lap. Like you, the machine quilting I've seen is more heavily quilted than what I've done. I like them for their artistic beauty and I do have a whole cloth heavily quilted (store bought, cheap, lol) coverlet on the bed while this is in the works but the Jewel Box one just feels so cosy. I suspect, as you said, that it just might be warmer because the filler hasn't been so compressed by very dense quilting.

    Your quilt is beautiful. I am working off and on one now that I made up as a kit. Mine is made entirely of scraps. I am so glad you showed yours with the borders. You hand quilting is wonderful.
