Heather was right... straight line quilting is addictive. I absolutely loved putting together this little quilt. The fabric was just so soft, and paired with super soft bamboo/cotton batting it was a pleasure to work with. This is my first time quilting in straight lines, and it was so easy. Its the kind of project you can just turn your brain off and enjoy sewing away at great speed!
They're just 5in charm squares randomly put together with some solids. The is one of Ashley's designs (from Film in the Fridge) and she does them so well. There's something lovely and patchworky about combining simple squares. I'd like to make a full sized version one day.
I wanted to keep this one super soft so I went for a whole back
Look, the fish are swimming down stream.
Have you tried straight line quilting and if so, how far apart did you make your lines? Mine varied 1/4in to 1in, but mainly about 3/4in I think.
Addit: It was easy quilting a baby sized version, but I'm not sure how I'd go with a larger quilt. I can see it would take quite a while to quilt, and it would be a lot harder to wrangle it under the machine. Especially since you need to change the end you start from each time. I'll let you know how I go.
