Machine quilting

Yesterday I decided to quilt the latest flannel quilt that I finished in August. Click on the link and scroll down past the journal covers to see the whole top. I call this curvy crosshatching. The top had been in pieces in a box for several years with just one day needed to sew it together. Does that mean I should put on a label that it took me over 10 years to make it, LOL?

Here is the back of the quilt.
Today I have another finishing class to teach. One of my students pulled out a project from a class in 2001 to finish. I hope my brain will recall how to do it once I see my handout sheet that she has with it. I only taught the class 2 times so it isn't an instant recall thing.

The quilting is just beautiful. Even though it has been 10 years, aren't you glad that it is finished?

I'm sure that once you see the handout you will be right back
"up on the bike".

The cross hatching looks great on that quilt.

I LOVE your curved cross hatching. I think I will try that out on my next quilt.

I really like how you quilted this! It looks like a super cozy quilt!

I'm sure once you see the student's quilt, you'll have no trouble helping her finish.

The straight lines of the piecing and the waves of quilting correspond beautifully!

However you quilt a piece I am always inspired. I did go back and look at quilt in full, it is as wonderful now as it was then. We woke up to 2 degrees yesterday and 5 today. I would love to have that quilt wrapped around me now.

Your Christmas catus is lovely !

The quilt looks very cosy, great quilting, guess you do need to put on the label the start and finish.
Once you see the worksheet you will remember.

Nice... how far apart are those lines? When you quilt them do you still start in the middle and work out to the edges or do a couple horizontal lines and then a couple vertical lines?
I am definately adding this to my note book, thanks for all the great information.

Oh, I think I just figured out how to quilt my latest project. I haven't moved on it because I've been struggling. But I love this.
And yes, I think you should include the time delay on the label. It's part of the history of the quilt.

That flannel quilt looks so soft and snuggly. I love the wavy crosshatch quilting!

I have several quilts that list start and finish times (10) years apart! it just shows that it needed a lot of special thought to finish it just right or time for my skills to catch up with that design

Hi Wanda,
Love that curvy crosshatch quilting!
Do you leave your feed dogs up or down for this type of quilting? (I've seen it done both ways).
Looks like you got your internal battery charged back up!

What fun quilting. I've done some of that too and it's satisifying. I vote for a label since whoever gets it will enjoy knowing you made it.

yrs....ha!!

Your quilting on this flannel...
...I.LIKE.

People often ask how long it took to make a quilt. I can't work out why they want to know (is it better if it took 10 years or 10 hours?) or how to work it out!

...and in a stunningly original comment, I too like the curvy cross-hatching.
