What are you most proud of? I am very pleased with my quilting using my new walking foot. I did the echoing, grid, curved, sun-rays and of course stitch in the ditch. This little quilt has many uses, as well as being used for the car-seat it is also great for a buggy/stroller and with the ties it cannot be kicked off! You could even use it as a little play mat too!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was a lot of fun to do and the quilting class by Wendy is brilliant!

This is such a sweet little quilt! I'm sure Lily-Kate will love it for years to come.

Thank you Emafish, I just love making Lily-Kate things, she is actually the reason I got into patchwork as I wanted to make her something when she was born.

This is just gorgeous and I'd like to make one for my own little Lily (she's Lily Rose). It's a lovely idea and I'm off to the Moda Bakeshop to see what I can find. Thank you so much for sharing this and also the link to find the pattern. I've just received my open-toe free motion foot and, like you, am fired with enthusiasm!

Aw pat I can wait to see your little buggy quilt for Lily Rose:) I have described in detail where to find the link to the pattern further down in the comments on WasaNewbieJean comment.

Desna, your mini quilt is adorable. Free motion quilting is scary at first. The more we practice, the easier it gets. It is great fun to practice on wall hangings and lap quilt size pieces. Craftsy's FMQ classes are a big help.

Thanks mpac5000:))) I am getting quite addicted to FMQ now, at first I was scared to even get started but now it is all about practicing and yes the classes are a great help (where would we all be without Crafsty?)

What a pretty little treasure. We sure could of used these for our babies. You did a beautiful job. Thanks ever so for sharing. :-)

I would have loved this for my children, but it is wonderful to have the time to make them for our grandchildren. Thanks Pam for he lovely comment:)

This is a lovely quilt and I am going to Moda to get the pattern. It will make a great quilt for my premies. I just love your echo quilting, it makes the quilt extra special.

Thanks ladymax, it was a fun quilt to do and is being made great use off by my little granddaughter this winter. I love quilting with the walking foot but must try the darning foot in the NY.

I have to admit that I prefer using the walking foot for quilting. When I do free motion I either have my stitching too close together which makes the quilt less soft or i have problems with the stitches in the quilt back.
