Quilt #1 is all curled up on my window sill - FINISHED! Yay!
I quickly realized while quilting this why I have so many unfinished quilt tops.
I hate machine quilting.
It takes so long - just about as long as cutting all of the fabric and piecing it - not to mention that it's pretty difficult to do on a small machine.
For the quilting, I used a large meander stipple around the larger border. On the inner thin brown border I used a smaller meander stitch. The inside squares were stitched "in the ditch" or along the existing seams.
I'm not perfect at quilting yet, but I think the imperfections give it character. It's finally done and it feels good!
