These types of quilts were made to be tied maybe? They don’t like stretch frames all that much…..so when you quilt them you have to float them and start somewhere in the middle of the quilt so that you can quilt out and not stretch the materials out. I also quilted stipple with roses….I needed a looser type of design to help with the stretchy material. I think it quilted out beautiful. Now it’s a useable quilt ….made for it’s intended purpose to be used & loved.
