    It has been a long road, but I have my 7 rows sewn. Now to get those rows sewed and the top will be done.

    Considering I only purchased the fabric on Sept. 4th, I think I did pretty well. I barely sewed on it at all in October because of my vacation and being sick for 2 weeks.

    Questions

    #1: Should I press the seams in the row open or directional. Each block has 4 rows of seams in it. (They were pressed directionally that made it easier to sew the block in a row. )

    #2: When I start to quilt it, should I do all the SITD quilting before doing the center mofits or... do the mofits as I work in that area? (Machine quilting this baby right here... I may regret the size of this thing but I'm determined to do it ... One way or another!)

    Thanks in advance for your comments. I can always rely on this board for the best advice.

    Actually, the red is not the center. It's where all 4 corners come together. From the helpful hints I got here before, I'm planning on quilting this section with a double heart in white.

    I think your idea is a good one. It's a lovely quilt.
    i am going to do one in two sections and then put together.
    good luck.

    If you're going to SID, I would press your seams to one side - not open. This is going to be a beautiful quilt!

    According to both Harriett Hargrave and Diane Gaudynski you should SID before doing FMQ motifs to stablize the quilt. SID all over first and then go back to FMQ decorative motifs also affords you the opportunity to remove many of your basting pins and reducing the weight of the quilt. Try to see if you can't get your hands on Harriet Hargrave's "Heirloom Machine Quilting" book or Diane Gaudynski's book "Guide to Machine Quilting". Both books are written for the domestic home machine quilter and full of helpful hints and techniques and explanations as to why you should do one thing over another.

    Your quilt is lovely!

    I love that quilt! I think I need to try one in that pattern too. Looks very intricate, and I really like your work and the colors. I think the bedspread size is great too. :thumbup:

    Thank you Feline.... Love your kitty cat.

    It made sense to me to do all the SITD quilting 1st, but with this group you never know what short cuts or tips you get.
