I've tried a little matchstick quilting. My scrappy log cabin has 7 rows and in each row one block is quilted with something other than spirals. This is the last one of the different blocks, leaving me with only 6 blocks left to quilt with the spirals. Plus sashing and borders, of course. Someday this will be finished.

Matchstick quilting is supposed to feature straight-ish lines and mine certainly have the emphasis on the 'ish' part of that, as seen clearly from the back. Still, for a first attempt, I think they're passable. I do like the texture this style of quilting adds and I'll probably give it another go on a larger scale sometime.
Last night I stitched most of the quilt top for my And Sew On wallhanging. Only the borders left to add! I'll be hosting TGIFF at the end of the month and my goal is to have this as my finish that day. How's that for incentive?
