Pin basting


I've got my medallion top all pin basted ready to quilt, now I have to decide how I'll quilt it.
Since I am new to machine quilting this is always the hard part for me.  I am calling this my Diamond Jubilee quilt since I am celebrating my 60th year.  This is a sew along done by Lori and Randy and you can see more of the tops on their blogs.  Happy Sewing, Kim

Since I'm such a mediocre machine quilter, I'd probably stipple the border and do straight lines in the pieced portions (in the ditch maybe). I'd also probably try to outline the center appliqué...that always looks good. I'd use black in the border and maybe the same for the pieced sections. NICE job, Kim

I can't wait to see how you quilt this! For a first try, remember that less is more?

That is so pretty!! Please add a link to this blog post as I just put the finishing stitches on my binding and added the linky so we can see more of them through blogland.

Hello Kim, thankyou for your kind comment about my medallion quilt. I couldn't resist coming over to look at yours properly.
I love that you added your initials, especially as this is a special birthday year.
Don't they all look different? I would never have thought of using black, but it makes a very distinctive quilt. nice work!
