    Very nice quilt! You could do a simple stitch in the ditch on all the seams or tie it, if you aren't comfortable with quilting it. I really like the two accent blocks with the funky fabric...they add some whimsy. Be sure and let us see the finished product!

    Can you do diagonal lines?Go threw all the points of the diamonds and it will turn into cross hatching. Will your machine let you do something like that?

    Is that where I just fold the edges together and sew and the out line of my quilt still shows?? Or are you saying it will have the lil roll like seam around the edges?

    First, check your batting to see how far apart you need to quilt. That will determine if you can SID or if you need to do more quilting than that :D:D:D
