One thing that can cause a quilter grief is the perfection of the computerized quilting machines!!! I look at those and sometimes think I should never try to quilt on my home sewing machine. But, as life is--sometimes we just have to do what makes us happy and if someone else likes that is great. That is my motto for my donation quilts. I don't own a longarm quilting machine and many of my quilts are in my own wonky style. I've been practicing on a white board this quilting technique. It isn't perfect--it's rather folk art style, but it was much fun to do and the tension on my machine cooperated today!
I think I'll bind it in a red which will go with the lime green backing. I'll post another picture after I do that and then wash the quilt to soften it.
