I was able to get the Japanese x and + top quilted!
I basted it on the dining room table by using large binder clamps. I quilted it by following along the X shaped pieces, quilting in the ditch. I thought I’d see how it looked once I got that much done and see if it looked like it needed more?
Since the blocks are around 7.5″, just quilting across the quilt in a grid seemed to be enough?
I chose a black and white print for the binding.
You can see a bit of the backing peeking out too. I used an aqua/white print sheet. The aqua doesn’t match exact..but it’s a scrappy fun quilt and I think it’s just fine?
I’m happy with how my quilt turned out, even if it’s got just real simple quilting.
Here’s an “action shot”
