    Just finished making my quilt sandwich. Quilt measures 45" X 60" and I'm using Warm & Natural batting. I have to decide how to quilt it on the machine. Thought I might do 1/4 inch inside each large flowered triangle and stitch-in-ditch in the other triangle...not sure. Any suggestions? Still a novice at machine quilting and not ready for the big time. I do not want to make this one of my "sacrificial quilts"....I think this is a keeper.

    I'm sure you'll find lots of help here. Just wanted to stop and say nice job. Love the quilt. I'm sure you'll do a great job on it.

    What a gorgeous quilt. Your plan for quilting sounds good but that larger triangle might be a good place to practice some FMQ. With the design of the fabric any irregularities wouldn't be noticeable. It will be beautiful not matter how it's quilted. Nice work on the piecing and I love your choice of fabrics.

    I put the FMQ foot on machine, lowered the feeddogs and started to sew....practice is definitely needed...felt like a fish out of water. I think I'll practice on a pillow top. Thanks for your nice comments....I worked real hard matching points and thought I did a fairly good job.
