I love how the orange peel quilting turned out! This is my first attempt at using a ruler with my quilting machine. It really wasn't that difficult once I got the hang of it.
The pebble quilting took forever but I think the results are pretty cool. I would definitely do it again. I lowered my take up rail until it sat on the machine bed. This helps to stabilize the quilt for more detailed work. I had previously thought I would need to buy the micro handles for my machine in order to do such detail but turns out I did fine without. They micro handles are expensive!
The continuous curves on the orange border have some errors but I learned a lesson there too. On one side I tried quilting a bit at a time as i rolled the quilt. That did not work out so well. For the other side I turned the quilt after finishing all the rest and was able to quilt across instead of front to back. It made a huge difference in the quality.
I have attached the binding which is the same black material as the skinny borders and now only need to hand sew.
