This is my first proper attempt at making a quilt it is very wonky and full of mistakes. It measures 45 by 60 inches and here is my dilemma:  should I machine "stitch in the ditch" or should I go full learning curve and hand stitch all. Also what colour would you recommend? (the backing is blue and gold)
this is a view of the 2 blocks I used
All comments and criticisms welcome

I am anything but a perfectionist - I would probably machine stitch it as hand stitching takes so long - but it's beautiful.

I have taken the plunge and started quilting by hand as I am so frightened of messing it with the sewing machine and I can do it whilst DH and I watch the telly.

Oooo this would look lovely with Sashiko-style quilting on the borders (here's a good link: http://www.embroiderersguildwa.org.au/Types%20of%20Embroidery/Sashiko.htm )
