I need some advice. I have a baby quilt top that I'm going to try to
machine quilt - my first attempt! It's a nine-patch alternated with a
snowball block. I'd like to do diagonal straight line quilting in the
nine-patch blocks, and for the snowball blocks I want to free motion quilt
the baby's older sister's handprints.
My question is should I do the free motion quilting first or the straight
line quilting? I'm a hand quilter who always follows the rule of work from
the center outward, but from everything I've read, it doesn't seem like one
should follow this rule for machine quilting.
All advice would be appreciated!!
