As the years have passed I have found that machine quilting any project is perfectly fine and things get done faster. I am a passable machine quilter and practicing and learning with each project.
But I am finding that I really enjoy hand piecing. I am currently working on a project that I started at work while my computer was clocking. Now that project is almost completed and I have found something else to start hand piecing. I remember cutting this one out when I was in the first building our department started in. That was 3 buildings and I think 13 or 14 desks ago!! I cut a few more background pieces and marked them all and I will probably start on this new project sometime today!!
I am thinking that these two projects along with my flannel quilt which is UFO #4 will all be hand quilted. Of course, it is spring and then summer and it is not the best time to start hand quilting. But I have never been conventional in my quilting style so why start now!!!
