Naomi's Baby Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm pleased with my free-motion quilting on this quilt. I found a You Tube video on which someone demonstrated quilting flowers and loops and, after a bit of practice on a spare piece of quilt sandwich kept for the purpose, I took a deep breath and went ahead, including a few hearts as well.

What you will need

  • Pure cotton scraps; cotton thread
  • polyester wadding (batting).

This is simply beautiful! The colors are gorgeous and your free motion quilting is truly incredible. The accuracy of the flowers and the hearts are exceptional, as if you have been free motion quilting those for many years!

Thank you, Tanya, that's such a kind thing to say and give me encouragement to try again ... and again ... and again!
