Baby Quilt

This is a baby quilt I am going to give to an unsuspecting acquaintance. The mother-to-be has shown kindness to me on many occasions. So this will be hers in the near future.

I used fabric that was leftover from a couple of baby quilts I had made in the past. I love this fabric. It is so soft and cuddly. Just right for a baby. The backing is a blue flannel with teddy bears. I hope the quilt will bring her lots of smiles.

The Shy Little Kitten Quilted

I found a CD titled "Classic Line Quilting" from OESD that had exactly the kind of quilting shapes I wanted for quilting with the embroidery module. The CD included squares, long rectangles, and squares for corners and borders. The stand-alone squares were the one I used in the blocks. I used the long rectangles in the sashing. Then I connected the corner and border squares for the last step. I have used quilting collections before but they did not contain all the elements for an entire quilt. This collection contained circles and ovals. There are three other collections on the CD. You may have to enlarge the photo to see the quilting. I used white thread throughout. I really am pleased with the quilting.
