    It's not all that fancy but I'm still learning and I really liked the visual movement of the zig zags. It hopefully will be a quilt for DH's grand niece. I trying out hand quilting with pearl cotton. I know it's controversial but then again I like to live of the edge a little.

    good job...I like " living on the edge" too. Can I make a suggestion...instead of drawing those lines (in case they don't wash out) you can use masking tape.....just put down tape and sew along that line....when finished remove the tape and tape another section. i think you will like this method.....

    Your quilt, you quilt it and how and with what you want to. It is your work of art. And it looks great.

    Nice quilt. I recently ran across a couple of old quilts that were quilted the way your doing yours. It gives them a warm homey feel. I liked the look.
