has anyone ever quilted this?  I am almost done with the piecing.  I was thinking of tying the "x" blocks and quilting a design in the "o" blocks.  I was going to work center -out like always, but a member from my guild said I should tie the quilt first then double back to quilt the design..What does everyone think?

flo, i know this is late, but i quilted with a cross hatch in the chains and did an interlocking heart in the centers.   can't show itto you.   it is one i gave to one of the nieces and they used it for a cat bed.   and they don't understand why they don't get any more quilts.

I wound up tying the multicolor chains ans stitching a feather leaf circle in the white squares.  It was my son's wedding gift and finished 4 days before the wedding...Just in time for me to make and decorate the wedding cake.  Did I mention the wedding and reception were at my house and I also did the food too!  i crashed for about 2 weeks after.
