I got so jazzed about the project that I also offered to quilt up some of the finished tops. Jennifer already had a set of blocks for me at the sew day last week so I came home and sewed 'er up! The quilt is for the Lucile Packard Neonatal unit, so it is only 36" square. The small size gave me the opportunity to be bold with the quilting pattern, so I brought back a pattern that I used two years ago for a quilted shoulder bag
Basically you just start at the edge and start quilting in any old direction, curving any old amount, and continue until you get to the opposite side. Keep on going like that until you think it has good coverage. I looked over the top at intervals looking for un-quilted areas that were too big to leave alone, and then I would aim for them from the edge. In case you were wondering... it is F.U.N. You basically can't mess it up. Plus, I'm off the hook for doing a binding - I just pass it along! How's that for awesome?
