    Joseph's Coat quilt finished

    here is finished quilt. It was quilted in a ditch on my new JukiTL2010Q.
    I new that I can not do hand quilting because I am giving it back to the owner and not being sure where this quilt is going to end at, I did not feel that I can put all that time it will take to hand quilt. But, the whole time I was machine quilting I felt discomfort, knowing that it should have been hand quilted. Most likely I will always feel dissatisfaction, discomfort because of that.

    why do you think it should have been hand quilted. It is a beautiful quilt and machine quilting dosen't take away form that.

    not sure why I felt that way, it was hand pieced, and if it was a quilt for me, I would have hand quilted it. I did few blocks at first and it really looked good, but it was taking a long time.
    thanks

    Whoever gets to own that is blessed to have a beautiful quilt. I love it and you did a great job on it. I would be very happy to own it.

    I love it. You have done it justice so don't fret. Sometimes we have these set ideas about things and it can enhance what we do or take away from what we do. In this case you need to let yourself enjoy the quilts outcome despite your reservations. Lovely job.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    Wow. Beautiful quilt. How did you SID around all those curves? With a walking foot or FMQ foot?

    It's beautiful. You made a logical decision based on the information you have. No shame in that. Be proud of the accomplishment.

    I used walking foot and gloves, they make it so much easier to SID

    Hand or machined quilted, it is a wonderful quilt. Looks really nice. Someday hope to do one.

    I THINK you are being too hard on yourself. It is just a beautiful quilt just the way it is.

    It is a beautiful old fashioned quilt. I think the quilting looks great with it. It will be much stronger too.

    I think you did a fabulous job, it is beautiful and I am sure they will be thrilled with it. I was really not familiar with this pattern and I love it. Thanks for sharing.

    Being finished adds a great deal more value to the quilt than being unfinished "to be hand-stitched". You, the quilter, need to decide how much time you're willing to invest in the project. What a pretty quilt! :-)

    It's beautiful. Don't worry about the machine quilting, it doesn't detract from it one bit.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
