Quilting Again!

I have been practicing free motion quilting lately. It is one of the more challenging thing I have tried to do. I think this is going to be something that I am going to enjoy once I get the hang of it. It is going to require lots of practice!!!
Here is my helper. It seems like whenever I lay something down to photograph it Skittles needs to come and help...
Here is my first baby blanket. I had the piece of fabric that I used in the center and just loved it as it was so I chose to create boarders around it. It was very fun to do. I also decided I needed to try and do some free motion quilting on something other than practice pieces.

I still have a long way to go with my free motion quilting but I think I have jumped into it with both feet. Here we go...

There is no turning back.

I have also been working on the 9 patch a day quilt along and I now have 52 squares. I think I am a bit behind but only about 5 or so.


  1. nice work Connie. Looks like you have the hang of it.

  2. I've missed stopping by to see what you're doing...I don't know where the time has gone but June just seems to have slipped away!
    Love this baby quilt! That center piece is so sweet!
