I'm getting into a rut, resorting to stippling most of my finishes.  I do love to hand quilt also, but would like to finish this quilt faster than that.  I would love to get some suggestions on how to quilt this sampler.

Should I do each block differently?   I'm using my home machine , Janome Memory Craft 9000, and have been feeling pretty confident doing some different fmq  .....  

The "grand-puppy" checking it out 

Isn't he adorable?  
Back to the issue ... any suggestions for quilting this project would be appreciated.


  1. I think this would be the perfect quilt to try out different fmqing... because each block is different it would look natural to have each one quilted differently.

    1. Thanks for the comment. I was just checking out your blog and saw your post about visiting your son in London ON ....that's where we live, and yes we sure did have the winter that just did not give up !

  2. I would suggest 1/4 inch lines on either side of the block lines, and then an echoing pattern (of what the pattern is) on the individual blocks, it will look lovely whatever way you go, I'm sure!
