Melissa's quilt.

Quilt made by Melissa. My daughter tied this quilt and finished it on her 13th birthday. The ties were coming untied so she asked me to quilt it for her. She must have had a good teacher (me!) since it lay flat and square; it quilted up beautifully. I used a thin red polyester (bottom line) thread and line danced in the blocks and spirals in the sashing and borders. The borders had been quilted on the domestic machine in straight lines and the corners were hand quilted. I stippled around the hand quilting. There was some fullness in the last row but it quilted out just fine.
