This is the second time I used this pattern (Eleanor Burns) and it is so simple, and I love the traditional look of the design. I quilted it on the sewing machine, but one could do some pretty handquilted designs in each square.
I chose to try straight line quilting on this one. I didn't even switch out to the quilting foot. I ran this little quilt through the machine and I was pleased with the tension and how the threads looked on the back side. I usually have a difficult time getting the back tension correct when free motion quilting.
I remember reading somewhere that you should always stitch in the same direction... not stitch to one end and travel back to the other end. I think I may have done just that with a few lines... see the ripples in the middle?
I like to personalize my quilts, but never 'love' my labels. Next time, I may try to embroider on the quilt itself, before the quilting stitch is done. (this would probably look better with an embroidered border, too) I save labels on pinterest and found the following label recently.... I may even try this one next time.
