Quilted Finish

Image may contain: stripes and table

I finished machine quilting this cute quilt. It was made by Auntie Em for Quilts for Kids. As usual, I'm so lucky to be able to work on these quilts. I learn a lot and hopefully help out a child at the same time.

I quilted curves around each seam in the 9 patch blocks. I stitched a square in a square in the fish fabric block. I then stitched a diamond inside that stitched block. I finished it with wishbone stitched inside the diamond. It's so hard to see! That fabric is so fun but hides my stitches!

You may be able to see my stitching better in this picture of the backing.

I decided to stitch a big stipple in the borders. You can't really see my stitches so I thought stippling was a good way to finish up this darling quilt!
