So, I've been working on the wonky stacked coins quilt for some time. I finished the top and started quilting. I originally wanted to do free motion quilting with a meandering stitch. But my sewing machines were not cooperating! I really need to get them serviced.
I decided to do a straight quilting stitch down the quilt with spacing of 1/2 inch. At first I didn't think I would like the result, but I like how it turned out. The quilting creates a wonderful texture and makes the quilt top and bottom more soft.
