If you get a quilt quilted by a longarmer, most of the time because of the density of the quilting there isn't a lot of drape - aka it isn't cuddly. Not good or bad, just an assumption before I ask the question.
If you densely hand quilt do you get the same effect?
Full disclosure, my top is still being basted so I haven't gotten past minimal quilting yet.
Oh yeah, On the blog, I typed it, I'm going to hand quilt a quilt. & no I'm not smart enough to start with a crib quilt, I'm starting with a KING size quilt. I have quilted smaller pieces, & I got a frame that I hope will fix my previous "can't get past the point where I can bunch up the quilt" problem.
Memory - such a fleeting thing to have... One of my UFO's is a hand quilted lap quilt. So I am apparently not starting with a KING, but it kind of sounds like I might be moving on to a king before finishing a lap.

After going to the quilt show in Hershey, Pa, where I got my great grandmothers quilt appraised & spent too much money.
