Free Motion Quilted Doll Quilt



Yup, I got brave and did the free motion quilting on this doll quilt for my granddaughter. The quilt is made of the scraps from the quilt that I made her a little while ago. You can click on the labels for this post to see it.

I didn't do that great of a job on the free motion quilting but it certainly was easier than I thought it would be. I had problems keeping the rhythm but I think I will get it in time. It was a lot of fun and I plan on doing a lot more of it. Also I need to keep my stitches an even length as much as possible but all in all it turned out great. At least I think it did. Don't look too closely at the stitches. LOL

The little bunny I got at a garage sale and thought I would put that in the package to send with the quilt. I think she will like that. Thanks for looking.

What a sweet sweet quilt this is! The colors are just fabulous!

Good job on giving free-motion quilting a try! :) I find that slowing the stitching down really helps with the rhythm and the stitches.

Have a lovely day. Oh, and thank you for visiting me and leaving the kind comments on my quilts :)

Such a pretty quilt. And you did great on the quilting. You are right, it'll get easier each time... and it'll be even more fun (if you can believe that!)
