    This one was more fun. Quilting panels is easier than basic fmq--I don't have to be creative. :roll: This is the same sun I used on the baby Triple Irish Chains, but I made them bigger.

    Good news: I didn't have to rip anything out this time except some decorative stitching I put at intersections to give empty spots more security--and that was only in one spot in the center. It was too restricting. And I didn't sew the back folded with the quilting--I pinned the corners. :wink:

    The one lesson learned here is to not use the shelf that comes with the machine to quilt--the quilt would get caught on the corners and make things not so smoothly. :|

    The suns were pinned in the center of the black squares..but didn't always get there.

    This little quilt is so nice. I think your little tacking stitches are a good idea. Did you come up with that one?

    Yes!! It was me! :lol: I was going to quilt a small heart in those places, but I was feeling lazy and wanted to finish this in a hurry, so I used never before stitches I have on my machine!

    Do I win a prize? :-D

    Looks like you are on the way to not hating the quilting part so much! :wink:

    You wrote: The suns were pinned in the center of the black squares. So does this mean you drew the suns on paper and then pinned them to the quilt and quilted the design through paper and all? I'd like to try that and wondered how it worked for you. If this isn't how you did it can you elaborate?

    Yes--that's what I did. I had done it once before, but sandpat encouraged me to try it again. Regular printing papers didn't work as well for me, but she suggested tracing paper, which was okay. I bought some even thinner paper to use next time. I traced every sun on the last three baby quilts, but another way I read about is to trace one, then layer about 15 of the papers under an unthreaded needle and let the needle make the design on the rest. I admit I hate tearing the paper off--it loosens stitches no matter how careful I am. But--maybe they'll fix when it's washed.

    Oh--be sure to trace with a perm marker--NOT pencil. The lead showed up on my first sun on one of the other quilts and I had to tear out the stitches. I actually noticed a bit of blue marker on a few threads...so I started sewing just outside the tracing line.

    Mamagus--if you can trace and sew on a line, you can do it. :wink: I, um, had a little trouble always sewing on the line, BUT if you use something that doesn't have to be exact--it's fine. hee hee
