Plaid Quilting

I made up a new quilting design! At least it's new to me, so it feels like I thought it up myself....I call it  'Plaid Quilting'. Straightish lines congregated together in sections both horizontally and vertically....easy peasy!
 The quilting is a little harder to see on the front of the quilt, but I like the youthfulness of it with the fabric in the middle of this design.
Another binding to sew down and then you can see the whole schmoe! 
I named the quilt "Fun in the Sun". We've had lots of that this summer!!
Good bye, August!

  3. I like the quilting design you made up. It works well on the quilt. I think it would do good on a couple of my quilt tops that are waiting on machine quilting. I am ready to see the whole quilt.

  4. Cute, cute! Plaid quilting is a neat idea for a simple to quilt design that has a good wow factor. It really does suit your fabrics. And I noticed binding from the back to the front. Are you machine sewing it into place? I've never tried that method. Do you like it?
