    Queen Size Quilt and Shams completed! Quilting Questions

    I had asked for advice on how to quilt this quilt in a previous post. Quilt is finished! I love the swirled quilt pattern in the white blocks. They mimic the swirls in the colored fabric so well. (71 of those squares!). I also wish I had the setting triangle quilt pattern in a larger size. It is a little small for the size of the triangles. I did SITD on the rails and 9 patch. I had some difficulty with the SITD. It is a large queen size quilt, and hard to support through my DSM. I did this on my kitchen table for extra support. I used a SITD foot. Maybe it would have been better and easier to use a walking foot? Also, I did the SITD first, and then hooped and quilted the white squares. Anyone have experience with the best order in which to quilt when using different quilting methods?

    For the shams I used the same swirly quilt pattern in different sizes plus a little SITD. Wish I had added a flange to the envelope pillow shams to better frame the top and bottom of the star.

    Overall, I am very happy with the quilt. It is going on our bed in my daughter's house.

    Your quilting is just super! I too use a walking foot when quilting in the ditch-much easier. I really like the motif you used in the white areas. Was that a stencil?

    I will try using a walking foot instead of a SITD foot next time. Thanks for the feedback. EKUW, the quilting in the white squares and setting triangles was done using the embroidery attachment on my DSM. Quilted in the hoop.

    Beautiful quilt and I love your swirl quilting. I have made a queen size on a DSM also, it is quite a handfull. I used a walking foot first and sort of stabilized the blocks throughout the quilt then went back and did the freemotion part. In theory, it made the back smoother. But that's only theory. I really like the grey setting blocks in your quilt.
