i was wondering this too and agree with your suggestion, although I have not had a problem with SID in one direction when using a walking foot. I would recommend loosening the presser foot pressure and a walking foot.

Forgot to mention, quilt is beautiful and I agree with others that washing will solve everything. Nice thing about this board is that everyone is so helpful and you learn so much here!

Looks good to me! Keep up the good work and keep posting pics. There are no quilt police here. We all learn from each other.

Yep, I have sewn in "opposite" directions when making lap quilts but decided not to with this big one as it would mean having a lot more bulk under the machine every alternate row and this would increase as I continued with each row. I opted to sew in the one direction, starting from the middle and working outwards so that I would have less bulk under the machine each time. Have I misunderstood this principle?

Hi! beautiful quilt. Your quilting looks great. I just did one and yours looks better than mine (and I've been quilting 20 years). I like the poofie look. If you use polyester batting it does that. I like it. Cotton batting is flatter. You are doing great.
