I've decided that I'm calling this method my vanity quilting. Seriously, each and every stitch is highly visible. I've done more since taking the pictures and the quilting, while being incredibly noticeable, I think draws more attention to the quilt than the quilting. I'm also really liking the dimension it gives the quilt. I am a big fan of poofiness, but for a general use quilt I use low loft. The little channels really look good. I'm liking the quilt right now.
