    Just finished a quilt top

    Hi, just finished a quilt to for my DDIL. She went onling and found a pic of this quilt. Emailed me right away and asked if I could do this. She had fabric samples and bed size in hand. So I went home and fiqured out what size blocks and etc what I would need. I decided on 4.5 inch blocks and went to work on the middle. Then measured what I needed for the other 2/3s Great... no, I made a wrong cut on the length of one. Spent a couple of days thinking about it, didn't tell DDIL... went ahead and figured a new heading might work... Put it all together. Sent her a couple of pics and she wrote back "Don't touch or change a thing." She liked the addition. So now to figure out the quilting on it. If I work this right. here is a pic of it... No pattern...

    Good job. I like it. Wish I could give suggestions on the quilting part, but I'm one who has to take days or weeks or more to figure out how I want to quilt a quilt.

    Nice quilt. I like the way the horizontal line intersects with the verticle line.

    I would do diagonal lines coming from the center piece edges It will go real quickly.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What a neat quilt! I'm partial to filling in blank spaces with woodgrain or circles or just wavy lines close together.

    ​Neat modern look! I would look at some of the modern quilts that have a lot of straight line quilting designs in the negative space areas.
