I am very pleased with this quilt. It turned out as cute as I envisioned it. It is for the director of children’s ministries at our church. Since I have four children, she has been closely involved with our family. I have known her husband since he was born. I was good friends with his older sister, and in a former life, I was his high school English teacher. This really special couple deserved a special baby quilt.
The machine quilting turned out okay too. For a while I was worried that I would wreck it, but I just took a deep breath and jumped in.
There is stippling in the animal blocks.
The design in the 9-patch blocks was inspired by the free-motion swirls tutorial on Such a Sew and Sew’s blog. Thanks! Don’t look too closely at the backtrack stitching.
Here is new mom opening it at her shower. I’m glad she liked it.
