    Beautiful quilt! I'm sure it will be much loved by your niece. These college quilts are hugs from home. Great Job.

    What a beautiful quilt! Love the color combinations. You should be very proud of your work.

    **When I took my first quilting class (October 2011) the instructor said forget about being perfect and just enjoy the process. I've taken that to heart.

    On my first two quilts, I did "stitch in a ditch" with a regular sewing machine foot. Wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Rolled the quilt, started in the middle and worked my way out. Then, there's always my seam ripper!!

    Beautiful quilt... I have always quilted my own quilts, learn as you go. I thought since I am putting all this time in the top that I want to go start to finish. That and when I started I couldnt afford to have someone quilt them for me. I was unable to figure out the hand basting and still havent mastered that lol. I use t pins to pin my backing to my carpet, then layer the quilt sandwich and use the curved safty pins everywhere. Holds tight with no puckers. I have done this method for hand quilting also. I think she will love her new quilt imperfections and all. Great job cant wait to see it quilted.

    You should be so proud. Lovely quilt - love it, love it. I agree with those that said diagnoal-cross hatching or simple SITD(sometimes this presents challenges if you have difficulty sewing in straight lines, between the seams).
    Terrific quilt. Tks for sharing.

    Realiy nice job. Stitch in the ditch or diagonal lines would look great since it's geometric in pattern. I like the idea of quilting away from the seam so you don't have to fuss too much with stitching right in the ditch.

    Your quilt looks great, love the colors. Just a suggestion, if you do go to a LAQ ask her to do simple quilting then the cost is more afforadable, unless price isn't an object. Have fun with whatever you decide to do. Great gift.

    Beautiful quilt! Love your sashing and your borders. Great color combo, too. I remember how it feels to finish that first one. Congrats!
