    I just watched the tutorial last night for the Friendship Braid. It was such a treat to see your baby quilt. I love it! Your skills are wonderful. Thanks for allowing us to see your latest work. Carol_Ann

    I still haven't quite got the hang of basting so I often get puckers where my lines of quilting cross so I came up with a plan that didn't require any crossing. I just echoed the seam lines in a zig zag and then stitched in the ditch up the edge of the border and went back across the other side of the strips.

    This picture shows the back after sewing three of the zig zags.

    Hope that helps dragonfly

    Thankyou, yes, I just love that it is so simple but ever so effective and it's more than enough quilting.

    Note to self, "I do not need to stay inside the box, lateral thinking is good, just because it's a braid does not mean I have to quilt along the braid".

    Thank you for your support everyone. The reason I have to think outside the box is that there is so much that I don't know how to do

    I still haven't attempted free motion quilting so all quilting is straight lines with my walking foot (or the incredibly slow hand quilting I did on the wedding quilt). Now I've got all the gifts out the way I think I'll give it a go on some scraps.

    There a number of tutorials available on the net for free motion quilting but try and find a class locally, the ladies who teach this have literally been there and done that. They have made the mistakes and learned what works and what doesn't, often the hard way. A class with a person willing to share their experience is very rewarding. I've been doing free machine quilting for some years but sat in on a class recently and still learned new things, it was time well spent.
