Basted and Ready for Quilting

My Hands 2 Help lap quilt is layered and pin basted, ready for quilting. I'm getting ready to go to Paducah, so it'll have to wait until I get back.

The top was made using fat eighths from a Benartex bundle I picked up several years ago. I used the rest of them and some more of the beige background print to piece the back.

I haven't decided how I'm going to quilt it yet. My FMQ skills are pretty much limited to an all-over meander. Any suggestions?

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts. Check out all the inspiration there!

  4. I like that pattern! Someone is going to be very happy to receive your quilt! When I have a quilt with lots of straight lines, I often quilt diagonal lines across the blocks. I start with one line from point to point, then echo quilt it 1/4" away on either side. It's easiest to start in a corner of the quilt - and from there, you space your lines, based on how close your batting requires. HTH!

So sorry to have to use word verification, but the spam has gotten unbearable lately.
