Thank youfor your nice comments. It is machine quilted. I had never done free motion before and this was the very first quilt back I had ever pieced that had been lying in a box for a few years. When I decided to try free motion I pulled it out and finishished it. Some of it was done with walking foot and some free motion. The back was done that way out of neccesity as I didnt have a big enough piece of any one fabric to make it.
