Out for a Walk - Finishing, Option 2

For my second Out for a Walk quilt, Iwanted a softer feel for the quilting, in contrast to the straight lines of the first quilt. I saw a great technique on Jacquie's blog a while back I wanted to try. It is a stitch on my machine, and I changed it slightly by increasing the stitch width to the max, giving me this fun allover wave effect.
For the back I chose to use Kona white with three funky, off centered dog squares bordered in a print from Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow. I used the same print for the binding.

Check out the previous post for a tutorial for this quilt. I think this one is my favorite of the two, but I love them both!

I have questions about that technique, too! Wow - I love how the stitches contrast with the straight lines. Did you use a zigzag stitch?
