About seven years ago, while building her quilting fabric stash, Katie bought an unfinished Bear’s Claw quilt top on eBay. It came to mind last night as I was falling asleep, because I was thinking about taking some hand piecing on my flight to Ireland next month. I didn’t know if the finished squares were pieced by hand or machine….I’d have to wait until I woke up in the morning to find out.
I poured my first cup of coffee and pulled out the four bags that held the quilt top pieces in various stages of completion. There are three completed blocks; one almost done; lots of half square triangles, sashing and squares; and some triangles that have been traced on squares of fabric, waiting to be cut out.
Here’s my question for you all….if I wanted to tackle this quilt top (with Katie’s permission, of course!), should I continue to piece this quilt by machine? Or would you switch it up and hand stitch the rest of it?
I realize that even if I use my machine, I run the risk of my blocks looking a bit different simply because I’m not the original quilter. Would you agree?
Thank you in advance for your advice!
