This time around I made a baby quilt. The fabrics used are from the Noteworthy line by Sweetwater. Perfect for the low volume quilts that are popular right now. The letters were pieced improv style and the churn dash blocks were pieced using this tutorial from Lollyquilts.
For the quilting, I knew I wanted pebbles. Lots of pebbles.
Then came that empty area in the middle. I took inspiration from Angela Walters book, Free Motion Quilting. Page 51 to be exact. It combines wavy lines and pebbles which happen to be the two free motion patterns I can do : )
One night, I got myself all cranked up on coffee and just went for it.
The back shows it much better. Also, the wishbone quilting around the border was a design in the book too. I found that very fun !
This picture is a bit shaded but you can see all the quilting better.
I think I'll tuck this quilt away and save it for a special little someone.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Festival
