    I don't think it would hurt to do that. It's a small quilt, so that should work.... What do the rest of you think, am curious???...

    It's darling! You'll probably be happier if you go back and stitch in the ditch. I have one that I forgot to quilt in the borders and it bothers me everytime I look at it. So now it's in the closet.

    Have you quilted it at all? If not, I'd definitely go back and quilt something on it.

    I don't think it would hurt anything. I went back and quilted borders after I'd bound and it went ok. I agree with dcquilter, I think you'll be happier with it if you do. Just be easy with it.

    I've tried to do this in the past and end up with a bunch somewhere. Maybe try a loose curl as that can be more forgiving than the sitd. Let us know what works.

    I think it would give it extra stability, and it wouldn't hurt that you have already bound it.

    I have done that before -- your quilt is stabilized so it should be OK.

    should be fine. if you don't want to do Stitch in the ditch, just do curves in the white. just use your walking foot and move the quilt to the left and then the right as you go along. I do that a lot.

    You can add quilting after your quilt is finished. I have done it in the past.

    What a lovely quilt! I am fixing to start on a Nativity quilt, too, will have to look at the pattern I got a while back and see if I like it as much as yours...lol. As far as adding quilting, I have gone back and quilted in areas, and it has been fine.
