Quilting this little Scrappy Trip was very easy once I had batting. Diagonal quilting with grey thread in the center, stippling with white thread in the lightest areas around the diamonds and spirals on the outer border in dark green thread. I posted a tutorial for the diamond border
here. Although the quilt still needs blocking you can see how this method of calculating the length for the borders keeps the quilt nicely squared. Any waviness from bias edges in the middle border is easily quilted out.

The loop in the upper right-hand corner was suggested by +Joanne Goranson
a few months ago. A child's finger can fit in it so they can cuddle or drag their quilt around. Next time I'll sew the loop ends farther apart.
The back is the last of these light green prints. The plaid is an older Riley Blake fabric. The diamond scraps made a fun central stripe.

Fret not; enjoy the day.
