    I printed out these instructions a long time ago and now just getting around to making a quilt. Making it lap size but no idea how to quilt it.Do tired of doing stich in a ditch and gentle meanderings. Any suggestions? I'm doing two colors. One block is red/black and the other is black and white. Here's the link: http://quiltville.com/delmts.shtml

    How about doing echo quilting? Rounding out the corners and just doing gentle ~~~~~~ all along? It would emphasise the up and down flow of the pattern across the quilt top.

    Thank you for that great link! The pattern is so simple yet intriguing. As far as quilting goes, instead of SITD, I use the ditch as a guide for the side of my needle and stitch on one side then the other side of the ditch. I avoid that little place where I "go off" the ditch, and it makes a nice little double trail instead. I also love the way the back of the quilt looks with the double lines making a small path. Have fun.
