Baby Quilt is Done!!


I am so happy to say I have finished my baby quilt! I finished it late last night. It's pretty good timing since the baby shower is this Sunday. I love the way it came out and hope the person I give it to will love it as much as I do. I love making quilts as gifts but am sort of sad to give them away. I guess I feel somewhat connected to it but I do want someone to actually use it and enjoy it.

Here's a close up of the free motion quilting. It's the only quilting I feel comfortable with other than stitching in the ditch.
I like the look of a somewhat crinkled up quilt top. The meandering adds some sort of depth to the whole quilt. I think it's a nice way to finish a quilt but I would also like to have more of a variety of stitches that I can finish a quilt. I'm back to practicing more free motion quilting!! This may take a while!

  2. I love the background on this one--and your machine quilting really makes it so cozy looking. Great work. Don't you feel as if the quilt is your "baby"??? Julierose
