Baby Quilt

Finished project

Finished project

Found this beautiful fabric that would be perfect for a bay quilt.  Love the warmth of the light yellow.  A yellow gingham worked well for the back layer.  Lucky for me, I had yellow gingham bias tape for the binding.  Tried to be creative with the quilting stitch so I made rows of connecting hearts.  Not bad for my first attempt at a free hand machine quilting stitch.  Normally, I use a series of intersecting lines.  This was much better as it shows the love that went into making this baby quilt.  Finished measurements about 44 x 45 inches.

Closeup of Baby Quilt  Here’s a close up the front (top) layer.  Loved the little animals on the light yellow background.  You can see a bit of the heart quilting rows.

Gingham background  Gingham background allows the heart quilting lines to stand out.  Just a light pressing and its ready for the craft fair.
