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.

Gray and yellow baby quilt is finished! So, hip hop hooray… ho… hey… ho…
I’m really happy with how it turned out. This quilt is for a friend who will be gifting it at a baby shower.
The colors requested were gray and yellow but we needed a pattern. After looking through pictures for inspiration, I found this. Perfect. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?
I used a rotating mat for the first time and loved using it. Curious to see what else I will use it for. The mat is great for trimming up the half square triangles.
After learning about THIS*, the HST size possibilities are endless!
*TIP: Rather than dry erase, use washi tape. It stays put if you are cutting multiples. Plus, it’s pretty and I’m always looking for reasons to bust out the washi.
