    I did piece it by hand, but I did EPP on it to make the Y seams easier. I didn't want to do hand piecing and love EPP so I just figured out which papers I needed.

    Thank you! Thank you! This is the second top I've pieced by hand. The first one was a scrappy hexie that I worked on for a couple years. It's up next to be quilted. Not sure when that will actually happen though. lol

    Are you going to do the quilting yourself? By hand?

    I will quilt it myself, but not by hand. I've never done hand quilting and I'm not sure I want to start now

    I did it once, it was a very special quilt. I don't think I'll ever do it again. It was very rewarding but it takes too much time which I think I don't have

    That's my feeling Anael. EPP and the occasional embroidery project take up all my hand work time. I'm getting ready to quilt a hexie quilt by machine which some people consider sacrilege. I consider it the only way I'll get the quilt done lol

    I really don't care what other people think about machine quilting and machine piecing. I once was told by 2 women (who don't quilt themselves) that what I was doing wasn't piecing or quilting because it should all be done by hand because that's the way it used to be done. So I asked them if they still were travelling on horseback because that's the way people travelled back in the days. They didn't answer that one LOL
