    I have finally finished piecing Joseph's Coat quilt. It belongs to my friend, her MIL has started it maybe 30 or more years ago.

    Since it took me so long to finish piecing it, I do not think that I have in me to hand quilt or can it be machine quilted?
    any thoughts on that will be appreciated

    ps
    picture was taken last fall when I receive it
    thanks

    That is just beautiful. What an undertaking to work on a quilt that someone else started, but also what a gift. It must be so neat to have it finished. :) :lol:

    Machine quilting is very appropriate on anything. I haven't hand quilted anything since I started machine quilted almost 9 years ago.

    How pretty, I would love to see it now that you have finished it. I also think anything can be machine quilted...I do nothing else.

    If you know how to machine quilt it I'd go that route.
    You've already put so much time into it

    This will be a stunning quilt! Love it! You can machine quilt any quilt you want. No quilt police here. Some quilts just call out to be handquilted, but if it has a lot of seams, I do not like to hand quilt them. Just my feelings or opinion. Either way it will be gorgeous!
