    I defintely have to do this!, it just "makes" this quilt and I cannot seem to get the hang of hand quilting with the small stitches. Beautiful job.

    The big stitches achieved a lot of motion that normal quilting would not have done. I like the nautical theme. How did you make the lighthouses?

    Susy, this is good practice for you in case you ever want to try hand quilting. :thumbup:

    The lighthouses are batik panels I bought at the Lancaster Quilt Show this year!
    Thanks for the kind words!

    Looks great. The bigger stitches add so much more to the design than the tiny ones would have.

    I really like this effect. Should be relaxing to do also.

    your quilting really brought together all the colors of the sea in the batiks and gave the illusion of waves. NICE WORK!
