This quilt is the reason I bought a short arm quilting machine with a stitch regulator. I fought quilting with my domestic machine to quilt this very bright quilt for my only grand-daughter. My daughter and I cross-stitched the care bear blocks as they were very time comsuming, but the machine quilting should be viewed 10 feet away with your glasses off. I have following this board for about a year and can't wait to get home from work and see all the beautiful quilts everyone makes. It is like going to a quilt show every day.
