I don't profess to be an expert machine quilter; I am merely one who is comfortable with what she is doing. I enjoy both the process and the result. Because it is unmarked, my stitching is not always even and frankly, I like it that way. To my eye, it gives a charming look, one which signals that the stitching is not computerised but that each has been done individually. Sewing continuous curves in a square block is particularly satisfying, both in terms of speed and effect. I've chosen to quilt the Nine Patch blocks this way.
