    Quilt top done.

    Just finished this quilt top this weekend. It sure went together quickly. Which of course leads to more decisions, should I hand-quilt or send out the LAQ?

    I love that pattern! Do you enjoy hand quilting? it would be a nice winter project if you do. It does have some large white areas that an expert longarmer could highlight with intricate designs.

    I would seriously consider doing the quilting yourself! Professional quilting so often is very beautiful, but often overpowers the design of the quilt. A cross is a symbol of simplicity and love. It doesn't need a lot of fuss. So I vote for hand quilting.

    Very pretty quilt. Love the colors. I can't advise on the quilting tho.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    Well done. Love the fabric. I would go for a simple quilting design. I think that heavy quilting detracts from the design and fabric. To me the purpose of the quilting is to hold the 3 layers together not the feature.

    I got the pattern from charismascorner.com . She has made several and the layout is quite simple. After I got all the squares cut out I spent about 2 hours sewing them into rows and then about 2 hours sewing the rows together. I used 5 3/4 unfinished squares to end up with a smallish queen size quilt.

    I made this one for a similar reason I have a nephew who was in the National Guard for many years and is struggling now. He was recently diagnosed as 80% disabled due to PTSD and really hates what he feels is the negative label.

    If you enjoy hand sewing, you would probably enjoy quilting. I simply do not have the patience for hand quilting--I gave it a good try but ended up having a friend finish the project! I like you quilt top.
    God Bless,
