I machine stitched in the ditch along the continuous horizontal, vertical and diagonal seam lines to start the quilting. Then I bound the edges which I always do before I begin hand quilting, as it makes the hand quilting so much more enjoyable and keeps the quilt in good condition during all the handling. I decided to hand quilt in straight lines inside each square. Here I go . . .
