    Here it is - AND my first attempt at machine FMQ. I couldn't do it on my old machine, dogs wouldn't drop, so i just bought a machine second hand from a friend and now I can do it! Woo hoo! I think it's the only way to quilt these Ks - no point handquilting them, you just don't see it!

    I used Warm and Natural cotton batting which is nice and thin and wasn't too bulky through the throat, which is just regular size. My stitch length is a bit variable but all in all I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Brilliant to get a top quilted in a few hours instead of weeks! I'll still hand quilt when a more decorative effect is called for but it's great to have the option to machine quilt as well - especially since I plan on making quite a few more of these One Block Wonders!

    :D K x

    Close up - and yes, I picked the best part to show you! LOL

    I especially love the theme of this quilt, my moms name is Pansy. Is the kalydescope pattern hard to do?

    I didn't find it hard - I followed the instructions in the book One Block Wonders by Maxine Rosenthal. I'm totally hooked on this technique. I'm already piecing a second one and have a few more planned!

    Amma - thanks for the complement on the FMQ - but like I said, I showed you the best bit! :D This is a good pattern to practice on though - so busy you don't see mistakes! :wink:
