    It worked! Any ideas for quilting in the 5" squares that would be easy for a beginner?

    It is beautiful! I am sure one of the more experienced quilters can give you great suggestions on how to fill the plain squares.

    Gorgeous!!

    I'm not very experienced at actually quilting the squares - I used to tie - and I mostly quilt in the ditch or do echo quilting now - but a simple quilted X across each plain square would be quick and echo the pieced squares kinda -

    I know lots of these ladies will have much better ideas!!!

    Hi CindyBee, that's a lovely quilt you've made :thumbup: . I like QuiltinSolitude's idea for the quilting. I'm not the worlds greatest machine quilter :? , so I mostly do stitch in the ditch and straight lines. If you want some thing fairly quick I would Stitch in the ditch right across the quilt to frame your blocks and then the X. I have drawn up a quick sketch of what I mean cause I'm lazy and it's easier to show a pic :lol: . The red lines show in the ditch quilting and the black are to show the X. The largest gap between your quilting would be 2 1/2", which I think is ok for most batts.

    I kind of like to quilt diamonds.

    I actually wouldn't quilt all these lines, just the main diamond box in the center of the square is probably all I would do, since you're under time constraints.

    That is sure a pretty quilt. Thanks for the pattern. I'll have to do that someday. I sure need to burn a CD before I lose all the good ideas here.

    Shelly:
    Thank you so much for taking the time to show me how to quilt this!
    I am a visual learner and this has helped me tremendously. How do you get the graphic of the quilt? Is that a special program that you use? It's awesome!

    To everyone: Thanks for all the encouragement. It's so wonderful to have you all as mentors. I hope that I can help and encourage others also as I gain experience.
