    Straight line quilting

    This is the quilt that the straight line quilting has taken me ages, maybe if I hadn't stitched each block differently it would have been quicker lolName:  image.jpg

    Wow, everything about it is beautiful! You took a basic quilt pattern and made it spectacular with the colors/fabric and the quilting!

    looks beautiful and worth the time and effort
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    LOVE the quilting and how gorgeous the straight line stitching ended up! Totally inspiring and gives me ideas for a quilt I need to do. Beautiful!

    No QAYG, sandwiched with a fleece backing so it would be cosy and then quilted each block separately on my domestic.

    It may have been done quicker but the straight line quilting is perfect for this quilt. I love it.
