    Wow I can tell you put lots of hard work into that beautiful quilt, so many small pinwheels etc.

    Hopefully you have an answer you like regarding the quilting.

    Don't you hate to part with this stunning quilt? I would be sad to see it leave my house, even tho I know that it will be loved in its new home.

    warm quilt hugs, sue in CA

    This babyblanket will be the first quilt I will give away outside of the family and I want it to be good, as I really had a lot of work so far.

    If I would do FMQ do I have to make a different pattern on the borders or does all over pattern means it is made all over? What (easy) pattern would you make on it?
    Having not much experience with FMQ should I better go with QID?
    Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated

    What a beautiful quilt!
    I am sure you have it quilted by now, but I would like to give you some food for thought (I didn't read the whole thread, so forgive me if this has already been mentioned.

    Quilting (making sure that three layers of material stay together and don't shift around, lessening the life of a quilt) is purely practical. As mentioned, it holds the batting in place so the quilt can be washed and stays cuddly and warm all over. It keeps the front and back from going in separate directions while being watched.

    The more quilting on an item, the stiffer it becomes. most battings have a recommended spacing between rows of stitches (or patterns) ... some are as small as 2", others as large as 10 inches. This is given so you know how much you need to quilt to keep the batting in one piece.

    However! Since most quilters get a bit bored with straight lines, the quilting patterns came in to being. There are really no rules for what goes where, only that the quilting be as even as possible ... for example - - do not make a lot of quilting at the first of your quilt and then get tired and start scattering it here and there. The more balanced the amount of stitching, the better the quilt will wear.
    And, you will find yourself doing more quilting and more intricate quilting as you become more experienced.
    Just a really neat quilt you created
