    Your quilt is beautiful and I agree that the black binding was the way to go. It just sets this off so pretty. Your fabrics are beautiful and your quilting is great. Can you tell me how you did the quilting? It looks like you didn't quilt the vertical blocks, but just the horizontal row lines and diagonal and the triangles inside? Is that right? And do you remember the order for that? Did you do all the horizontal lines first? This quilt just bumped up to next on my list thanks to your quilt. It is so pretty.

    "Can you tell me how you did the quilting? It looks like you didn't quilt the vertical blocks, but just the horizontal row lines and diagonal and the triangles inside? Is that right? And do you remember the order for that? Did you do all the horizontal lines first?"
    I always start by going around the border, I spray baste, so I've never had a problem with puckering when I do this. For me it keeps it square. Then stitched in the ditch vertically, starting at the top middle and work my way out. Then horizontally working my way out. Then diagonally both directions. Then I did the circles and then the little stars, that covers all the ditches. Then with matching threads did the gentle curves (see drawing) Then lastly I do the outside borders. I hope that helps. Also is a picture closer view.
