I shared this quilt top a while ago, asking for advice on the quilting. A friend had done the embroidery, and asked me to finish the quilt. I thought these squares were so cute, reminds me of baby Holly Hobbies.
So many of you recommended hand quilting, and I totally agree that hand quilting would've been the best option for this quilt, but I didn't want to put in that much time and I knew my friend didn't expect me to do that. So I went with in the ditch quilting. I went around each square, and then along the dark pink seams. I considered going around each light pink square, but I didn't.
I actually think the quilt needed the added stability that comes from crossing quilting lines. You can kind of see in this picture. I washed and dried it and everything stayed together, and the quilt was so soft. It's always a little scary doing work for other people. I didn't want to mess anything up.
