    I 'd probably hand tie it, as it looks old fashion to me, but then, I'm not into hand quilting or machine qwuilting yet. Not that good!LOL

    They are all hand sewn? There is no way I would have sold hand sewn blocks on ebay or anywhere. I think I'd rather see it quilted, even echo quilting would be wonderful.

    How is your son doing? Haven't heard anything in awhile.

    I'd tie it with red or yellow yarn.

    Ahhhh, grandbabies are such fun. My granddaughter and great grand are coming the end of the month. She wants to learn to sew. I'm glad they are doing well, it's good to hear news of them.

    I would quilt it. Since it is hand pieced I would want to make sure everything holds together without shifting.

    Machine quilt it. I only tie comforters and think all quilts should be quilted. Just my opinion.

    As a longarmer I vote for quilting. However if you have hand sewn blocks, often if it is quilted by machine, then it can hold things together longer and tighter then if it is tied. Just my 2 cents worth. If you are interested in having it quilted, I'm in AZ as well. I have done many hand/part machine quilted quilts.

    Either would be fine. I think it depends on the look you want. Machine quilting would be just fine.

    You can tie it and then if you don't like it you can "untie" it and quilt it!
