I love this quilt! I'm not too happy with my machine quilting because I made mistakes, but I went with the horizontal and vertical around the squares then the diagonal through the centers. I think it is a gem. This is going to be so fun to give to my friend! Wish I had a reason to keep it for myself. :) I really like making this size quilt...super quick! This only took me a total of 4 days. Not too bad!
