    This morning I had my next tutorial all set up in a Word file ready to post. Some how the file became corrupted and I lost all of it so I have to start over. So will post it directly like the others. LOL

    I would only cut one and try it on a block. Once you quilt it you can determine if you like the effect. Give yourself maybe an inch and a half extra all the way around the batting for your backing. I will be posting the next step shortly and I cover a little of this info.
    Have an awesome day!

    Quilting the individual blocks, This next step can be considered an extra TIP step. I found this suggested in several different blogs, you tube tutorials, and it is also mentioned in the Craftsy.com quilting class. Quilting Big Quilts on a Small Machine. http://www.craftsy.com/class/Quiltin...all-Machine/51

    To help me decide what type of design I want to quilt onto my block. I use a 20 x 20 piece of clear Vinyl laid over the square. Make sure it completely covers and at least overlaps the square. I then used a dry erase pen to audition different designs on the block.

    This is just an extra step that could be very helpful in deciding your quilt design.

    Quilting the Block

    I decided to use a Cross-Hatching design on my DP9. I used a walker foot for this project because the walker foot is great for quilting long straight lines and geometrical angles. I have also used the walker foot for Echo quilting and making wavy lines. The walker foot is a machine guided attachment with the feed dogs always up to my knowledge. If your design requires more free motion quilting then you will most likely want to use a darning foot aka FMQ foot and your feed dogs would be disengaged (down position). Diamond Grid, Echo Quilting, Stippling, Meandering are just a few other quilting designs that can be used.

    A great source of information on the Walker foot and Darning foot and also on Quilt Designs can be found in the book pictured. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Especially beginners and intermediates.

    Jenniky, you are doing a fabulous job of showing us ideas. And wouldn't you know it, I have that book but forget I have it all the time. Silly me.

    Here are a few of my 35 Sunbonnet Sue blocks. Ruby (my DGD) is a hot pink lovin' little girl so I am going to border each block with hot pinks prints. I am planning to use your method of planning the layout of the SS because I want them to flow colorwise and then pin their individually picked pink borders, so I also don't have like prints right next to each other. Your system that you showed will work so well for doing this. Not sure I wouldn't have come up with it on my own. Sew, thanks a million... at least!!
