This is definitely my go-to machine quilting pattern. It goes quickly, covering a lot of the quilt in a short amount of time, it's easy, and it looks pretty :o) This is what it looks like on paper...it's a pretty fun quilting pattern. I practiced a lot on paper before attempting the pattern on my quilts! But I have to say...I am kind of in a machine quilting rut. I need to branch out into other quilting techniques...but it's so easy to do what you already know! What is your go-to quilting pattern?
This quilt top was made by a sweet student of mine a few years ago when I used to teach high school. She was in 9th grade at the time, and was dying to make a quilt...perhaps I had something to do with that :o) Anyway, we would take time each week in study hall to work on the quilt top. That was almost 5 years ago now...and she never finished it. Well, she finished the quilt top. So her mom asked for me to finish it for her to give her as a Christmas present this year. I am so excited to finish this for her!
