My mother is an avid quilter...I think I took up knitting to rebel against her
She does hand sew all of her quilts, with the exception of a few...I do have some of her quilts that she made for myself and my babies....i have noticed that with handmade quilts, they tend to hold up better...machine quilts tend to fluff up in weird areas sometimes....
Plus with hand sewned quilts you can sew really nice patterns onto the quilts....


yes, it is a dying art....you need alot of patience to hand sew...it takes a long time..my youngest is four months and she is just now finishing his quilt but well worth the wait.
