One of my 10 Things for Summer was to complete the Back to School quilt designed by Temecula Quilt Co. and featured in Quilt Sampler Fall/Winter 2009. I took Carol's suggestion at Brown Quilts and just focused on completing each block design independently. Breaking the quilt down into pieces/parts made it so much more manageable! I finished the top yesterday and the only fabric I purchased was the black for the border and I found the perfect backing in my stash.
Now I am not sure about the quilting. The quilt featured in the magazine is very simply stippled all over. It is not too huge, so I would not mind quilting it by hand with pearl cotton. The quilt itself is detailed enough and any hand quilting would probably just get overlooked...What do you all in the blogging universe think? Hand quilt primitive style with pearl cotton or just simple long arm quilting? Please share your thoughts and or advice!
