Owl Baby Quilt

What are you most proud of? Those swirls in the background! I've never done background free motion quilting without pre-marking the design. I was able to incorporate the teachings from several free motion quilting Craftsy instructors and completed this project using my home sewing machine. Thank you Ann Petersen, Cindy Needham, Leah Day, and Angela Walters! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice, practice, practice! I love Angela's approach to free motion quilting. She doesn't worry about every little stitch being the perfect length. She doesn't "stress" over every little wobble! And as Leah Day would say, if you rip out every imperfect seam when free motion quilting, the only thing you're going to be good at is using a seam ripper!

Thanks everyone ...I found the book..
KGapud answered:
I'm sorry I didn't see your comment earlier! I'm glad you were able to find the book! It shouldn't be too difficult as it was published within the last two years or so. There are lots of great patterns in the book!

bln1924766577 asked:
Where can we find this book? The pattern is "whoo's your BABY?'" by Karen Costello Soltys from the book "jelly babies". I can't find it anyplace on internet. Is there another name for it?
KGapud answered:
Google "jelly babies quilt book" and it should come on multiple times. The it is published by That Patchwork Place which I believe is a division of Martingale. The book is all baby quilts using 2 1/2" strips. I love this book! Hope that helps!
