Finished up a baby quilt for friend using Kona cotton solids with a variegated thread.
Solid white backing really shows the thread pattern and colors.
Wavy lines are definitely my favorite free motion quilting pattern (right now). The texture is awesome. You can read about that method here.
Measures 47″ square.

I heart this quilt! Made for my friend Alyssa, her baby shower is next weekend. I finally used up some of my favorite fabrics that I’ve been hoarding.
Came up with the design myself – at first I just wanted a simple charm look, then decided to add a couple of stars. Just used a light gray for the background, dark gray for the border and teeny tiny gray polka dot pattern for the backing. This was the last quilt I machine quilted on my old machine (which I’ve kept for the free arm).
This little quilt tag is on the back – it’s roughly 4″ x 4″.
And I went shopping at a local fabric store today and picked up some fun colors for a Carnival quilt block I have in mind. LOVE these prints together! And they were on sale for $1 each when you bought 10 or more fat quarters. Score!
