Quilting in Progress

I was able to get the busy pink plus quilt layered and pin basted and I've started on the quilting. I'm quilting a simple diagonal grid. It's easy to eyeball it since these squares are only 3 inches, so no marking is needed. I'm using the even feed feature on my new machine, and I think I've got the presser foot pressure figured out. No puckers so far!

I'm halfway done with the quilting and the basting pins have been removed. I'll fill in the alternate lines between these to complete the grid. This quilt will have a soft drape when it's done because the quilting won't be too dense.

Although I'd like to finish and bind it this week, I know I won't be able to because I'm having a little minor surgery on my wrist tomorrow so I may not be doing much sewing or quilting for the next few days.

Preeti from Sew Preeti Quilts came up with a wonderful name for this quilt - Positively Radiant. I love it! Thank you, Preeti.
