    I just finished wall hanging, I've got to put the inner & outter borders. And I'm not sure how to quilt it. I've thought just a simple large checkerboard pattern would be good. I don't want to lose the pattern by using a busy quilting pattern...so HELP!
    Thanks!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    It's a beauty! I would quilt doing stitch in the ditch (SID).

    Thanks EllaBud,
    Do you think I should do the cross, and outline the yellow around? Or each individual peice? It's a log cabin quilt, so that's a lot of 'stitch n ditchin'.
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    I would do a diamond by stitching through the yellow & then a smaller diamond closer to the center, depending on what batting so you would know how close you need your stitching to be.

    Thanks thimblebug6000,
    Yes, the yellow would look good with a diamond pattern.....I do like the diamond pattern.
    I'll check on the batting, I'm sure it will be thin as this is a wallhanging quilt.
    Kind Regard,

    I made a blue Log Cabin for Jim for Christmas and quilted NEXT to the ditch. It came out great!

    I vote for diamond, too!! Yellow in the blue areas and blue in the yellow areas would make it sing.

    My first log cabin wall hanging was only 4 large blocks. It looks like a stained glass window. I stitched 1/4 inch inside of the seam and do not like that. Stitch in the ditch would look better in my opinion. I love the blue and yellow you have chosen. I have fabric too for a blue and yellow one to be done someday. Wish me luck.

    I would outline quilt it. About 1/4 inch in from the seams
