My granddaughter and I just finished a little lap quilt together.  It was a rail fence pattern and was her first quilt.

I am ready to sandwich the quilt and I am stumped on how I should quilt it.  I am looking for some type of quilting that is quick and easy...Meandering I guess would be an option...any thoughts from anyone?

You could do a cross hatch pattern...

Or you could do a meandering with loop d loops and stars or flowers...

You could X through each block and do 1/4" outlining...

You could do an outline stitch or stitch-in-the-ditch.

I would agree with CJ or just an all over meander.  Either way, don't forget to share the pictures!

 

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
