    I think I'll avoid it for a bit and move onto the next project. :wink:
    bb ~ here is the quilting I did on my baby TIC (left over blocks from my King size).
    I just stitched right through the middle of each piece. Goes fast and the total does look good. IMHO
    that's lovely. did you turn it on the diagonal to stitch or stitch diagonally as you went?

    Karla - re the heart motifs if you decide to go with that, I've ironed on freezer paper templates and gone round the edge with my walking foot before now, butting the edge of the foot against the edge of the paper - worked pretty good if you go slow round the bends. Just an idea! :-D

    OK, I didn't read through all the threads and may be suggesting something totally tabboo in your book but....Why not hand quilt something pretty in the center motifs?

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with mixing machine and hand quilting. and it looks great. I've done it on several baby quilts where I have hand quilted a motif that I knew I couldn't do by machine and machine quilted the rest.

    I've been playing with ideas. Once I practice I'll have to do them quickly because I'll get bad again right away. :lol:

    This is an idea from this website: http://www.daystyledesigns.com/index.htm

    Maybe it'd work in the open blocks, then do a stipple in the others?

    This one is incompete. I'd have to get the petals smoother...and do a better job at spacing.

    Will this make it too girly? :|

    Karla...here is what I do...I find a design that I like. It could be a stencil or a clip art file, coloring book...just anything. Then trace it, blow it up to the size you would like. Then...trace it onto vellum or tracing paper. Pin the paper to your quilt top making sure the design in exactly where you want it to end up and then SEW OVER THE PAPER on the lines. Tear the paper off when you are done...people think you are a rock star....Easy breezy...

    Editted to say...your quilts are gorgeous by the way!
