    This is the main body of the quilt I am making for an acquaintence here in our small town. I still have to add a 2" border of the palest green in the blocks then a 3" border of a tan with pink roses. Haven't decided what color to use for the binding yet. I'm leaning towards the darker sage green.

    I'm showing the back so y'all can see how my 1/4" outline stitch that I use for almost all my quilting makes a nice pattern on the backing. I'm quilting this throw using the sectional QAYG
    that I did the tutorial on. I'm not crazy about the extra lines it throws into the quilting pattern on the backing, but at least they are much easier on my body to quilt that way.

    Very pretty. Yes, the quilting does make an interesting pattern on the back. Your friend will be nice and snuggly.

    Wow! Every single seam on the back is exactly in the same place on the quilting! You're really GOOD!!! I couldn't do that if my life depended on it! Excellent!!!

    Oh sure you could. It's the nature of quilting, and especially when doing the easy QAYG method I now use. I haven't done the free motion or even stitch in the ditch because for me, this is the very easiest. I just sit my quarter inch foot on the piecing seamline and that puts my stitching to outline, (well actually usually it's inside the block so is that inlineing?) right at 1/4" and I just go around the shapes I want to emphasize. Since I am only using the top and a fleece backing, I don't have to be concerned with getting the quilting a certain number of inches close together. There is no batting to stabilize.
    By doing just a section at a time, it is much easier to handle for the quilting. This quilt I did one row at a time which is 4 sections, and then last I am adding the bindings so that makes the 5th.
