I have quilted this doll quilt with a diagonal grid intersecting in the center of each square (cross hatching). The squares created by the diagonal stitching lines are small, measuring just 1 inch each.
As this is a small project, 24 inches x 24 inches, basting was quick and easy, as was the quilting. I was able to baste this mini quilt on my work table, which takes the hard work out of this task. Furthermore, the squares of the quilt top are small, therefore no quilting lines were marked. When stitching small distances without marking, that is, from diagonal corner to corner through a block, it helps to look at the point that you are stitching to rather than looking at the actual stitching/needle.
I cannot wait to send this off to my secret partner.
