I really love the colours. How is it quilted? Must be lots of seams to quilt through.
Well done!

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

This is just the quilt top.  Regarding how to quilt it I will machine stitch squares . I think I'll try using the edge of my sewing foot to help guide me.But if I'm really up for a challenge I might also do stitch in the ditch.  Not sure.

Thanks all for the comments Grin

Very, very nice.  The colors really pop, and I know how hard it is to make "random" look decent.  You did an amazing job!

A great suggestion for quilting that I plan to use on my own similar quilt is to get something for your back that has a trace-able pattern and use that instead of marking.  For example.  If you wanted squares all over, you could get some plaid fabric or something with various squares or whatever.  If you wanted birds, you could have fabric with whatever kinds of birds and just outline them.  It can be whatever and much easier than trying to keep straight stitches or dealing with marking.  If you see a fabric on sale that would be good for this method, you might wanna try it.

I really like the variety.  Great job!  It is inspiring me to get back to work with my sewing basket.
