Spikey Quilt Quilting!

I started quilting the Spikey Quilt yesterday. I decided on a simple echo stitch near the ditch in matching thread for each second point. I was going to do for every point but quickly realized that sewing every second point was just as good. A tangle of rainbow threads!

I love my walking foot! It just glides over the fabric so nicely. I'm doing white around all the spikes and then am going to do some textural pebble quilting all over the white. I'm really pleased with how it is looking, its starting to grow on me with each stitch and I'm hoping that the person that receives this will be appreciative of the work gone into it. Even though the last quilt I made in this swap was ohh'ed and ahhh'ed over on flickr, I get the gut feeling that the person didn't really like it and I don't want that to happen to this little quilt. I know that is the risks of swaps, but..... you know what I mean don't you?

Well, if you really don't think your swap partner will like it, you can send it to me. I'll love it!

YES I certainly do know what you mean! I hope that doesn't happen again - this is a very special doll quilt. Your stitching work looks amazing. I look forward to seeing the entire quilt soon.

I can't believe someone wouldn't love this, it's stunning and so much work has gone into it. Your stitching is perfect.

I know exactly what you mean. I tell myself that hitting the ball out of the park every time isn't very likely, but it feels so good when it happens that the let down when it doesn't is huge. Know that your quilties are welcome at my house any time!!
