I'm knitting a baby blanket and wanted to sew on a fabric back (because I HATE seeing the seams on the back of my knitting). 
Should I hand sew or machine sew?
Does anyone have any experience with this.
I'd love to machine sew it because it faster and more professional looking, but I'm afraid that my knitting might get jammed or caught up on the needle. 
Please let me know what ya'll think!!

sorry i've never done it. but people machine sew their knitting all the time like when they do steeks, so i assume it should be okay for you to do.  i guess i'd be worried though if your blanket was kinda lacey. then i could imagine it jamming the machine.

do you have a knitted swatch maybe that you can fun through the machine with some fabric to see how it will come out?
