With all that curvy curvy mane stuff going on the the center area... I needed to use something more visually stabilizing on the quilt BORDER. Since the fillet in red is a 1/4 inch... I decided to use a quarter inch echoed squares motif around the whole border (top,bottom,left,right sides). It's not absolutely necessary to use a quilting foot to do this.... Instead, I put my regular 1/4" pressure foot on, significantly lightened up the pressure foot tension, engaged the feed dogs, and tested straight stitch on my practice quilt sandwich ( I always use one on something important.. same batting top,bottom fabrics too... i.e. a real comparison). This straight stitch squares quilting wasn't hard to do and as you will hopefully think ... looks nice.
BTW... About blocking... it can and may be done more than once. Once a piece has been folded / traveled etc to a show and returns home, it can be a bit out of wack and could be reblocked.
