|Machine quilting with walking foot
I knew I had to use a "forgiving" quilt design, because the backing was wonky, plus I had stitched together 4 chunks of leftover batting, and that turned out wavy too.
So I decided on a very simple quilt design - just some straight wavy lines (is that an oxymoron?!?)
Simple. Stress-free. FUN!
If you are not confident about your machine quilting but would like to improve, you must try this. Put on your walking foot and just quilt vertical lines across your quilt. It holds the layers together and it is very forgiving.

The walking foot design I used is shown on day 9.
I added a scrappy binding and then enjoyed some relaxing hand stitching while watching the Masters golf tournament on Sunday.
The sun even came out to shine on the quilt for a photo op!
This quilt will be donated to my guild's comfort quilt project, and I know it will warm a little girl's heart.

lots of inspiration to enjoy!
