So, here it is. My left over block quilt. Finished. Done. I'm sad actually. It was fun to put this one together ~ from start to finish!
There is a lot of talk about how quilting makes or breaks a quilt. It can enhance your design or detract from the over all feel of a design. I find that to be true to some extent. I also find that if I don't care for a quilting motif, then to me, that can spoil a finish. Let's face it, we all have our preference. So, quilt what you love. Its all a matter of opinion.

Now, its been a long, long time since I have added a border on any quilt. This one I knew needed one. When I first began quilting I thought every quilt needed a border to be complete. As the years went on, I knew that not to be true!
The quilting is 1/2" wide. So much fun and I love how it came together. I divided the quilt into 4 sections quilting continuous 'V's' in each. After it was finished I couldn't wait to throw it in the wash! Crinkle Baby Crinkle!
See, not so bad. Really, I don't think you can go wrong with straight line quilting. I love it, use it all the time and my machine loves it!
This little quilt has inspired me to finally, finally, finally quilt my first quilt of the year...the mama to this little one! (Here: FRESH START ~ FIRST PROJECT)
Tell me what you think about quilting a quilt. Do you think it makes or breaks it? Do you have designs you love and others that aren't 'your cup of tea'?
