  3. I prefer to bring it to my mom (who has a long arm) but since that`s not very feasible I tend to hand quilt

  27. I love the look of hand quilting, but tend to do both machine quilting and sending my tops to longarmers.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't know yet which way I will go. I am currently hand piecing my first block of my first ever quilt. I guess I will have to make several quilts and try all of the options before I can decide which I prefer.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I prefer hand quilting. I sit on the couch, with the quilt over me and stitch away. I feel like it's my time with the quilt, since I'm giving it away (I've only made quilts that I've given away). Once it's given, I won't get a chance to snuggle under it anymore. Thanks for the giveaway! robyn(dot)geddes(at)gmail(dot)com

  30. I like to do both depending on what I am quilting.

  31. I prefer machine quilting as I always feel like it will last longer (I don't always trust my hand stitches lol) but hand quilting is relaxing. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just recently got a long arm and I love it but it doesn't compare to hand quilting - to me that's the best

    ReplyDelete
  33. My grandma says the only way to really quilt is by hand, and so I am trying to learn

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've only done machine quilting so far, but I do enjoy "tedious" handiwork (petit point, embroidery, beading) so I have a feeling that I would really enjoy hand quilting as well.

    ReplyDelete
  35. machine quilting, definitely!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love both hand and machine quilting. I have never sent a quilt away but there is always a first time for everything.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would love to send them out to a long arm quilter if I had the money. But since I don't, I usually hand stitch mine. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I prefer to send it out. I'm not persnickety enough to get a good result with the quilting part !

    ReplyDelete
  39. Machine quilting.
    Thanks for the generous giveaway and a chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  40. If I have no deadlines, I do enjoy quilting by hand, it's very therapeutic! Most of my quilts, however, I fmq.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have only done machine quilting. Someday I wish to try hand quilting. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

  42. machine quilting! froggygirldesigns at gmail dot com

  43. I prefer hand quilting in theory, machine quilting in practice. I feel you can't say you made it if you pay someone to do half the work - I mean, in the quilt books, they'll give credit to the longarm quilter as well as the piecer, right? So I wouldn't feel right about saying "I made you this" if I honestly hadn't done anything but piece it and pay someone else to quilt it (or have their computer quilt it).

  44. I prefer machine quilting the small stuff but if it's anything larger than a lap quilt I can't handle it so I have to send it out.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!
