Free Motion Quilting - Baby's First Spring

Compared to the Log Cabin Throw this baby quilt has been a breeze to quilt on my domestic machine.  My guess is that it's about 1/3 smaller.  I used Warm & Natural cotton batting and flannel backing.  As usual I had a hard time deciding how to quilt this.  I settled on making a flower in the center of the large squares and then I did a wavy line outlining the square.  Then I continued with that style and did more exaggerated wavy lines in the frames and sashing.

This pic of the back shows the quilting much better.

I'm linked up with FMQ Friday at the Free Motion Quilting Project blog.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Quilting!

  6. Diane, I think your free motion quilting definitely complements your very cute baby quilt -- it looks totally professional! I especially like the curly centre of the flower, and always love those wavy lines. Lucky baby!!
