    Because its pretty!!! I have some quilts with double row stitching in designs to hold the middle layers in place... Looks beautiful, although with the age of these quilts, I'm pretty sure its entirely hand done by my wifes great grandma!!!!

    Yep, she'll regret that decision... There are times my wife goes to bed on a Friday night, and I'm up past 2AM trying to finish the latest project!
