    I remember reading the term "organic lines" for the first time and thinking "Yes! So it doesn't have to be perfectly straight!"

    You're making "organic lines."

    Okay, so I've finished my 1"-ish lines and to make matters just that little bit worse wouldn't you know I had the wrong walking foot on for my machine and so as well as having crooked lines, I also had a lot of problems with foot pressure and quilt feeding resulting in some interesting stitch lengths and fabric shifting! It wasn't till I literally got the the last 6 rows that I realised why I was having so much trouble!!! Anyway, so I'm thinking about these options and would value all opinions please.
    Option 1....Leave as is and finish off.
    Option 2.....Do another set of lines dividing each column again in half giving approximate 1/2" columns.
    Option 3.....Do a run of diagonals both ways, running through the large stars and the large 16 patch blocks?
    Would either option 2 or 3 improve/disguise the appearance of the fabric shift?

    I think it looks wonderful just the way it is now. I wouldn't add any more quilting.

    Just give it a wash and dry, and no one will ever notice.
