Baby Quilt

Finished it today.  I did all free hand no stencils, or pantos.  Outer border butterflies, inner border stippling, each 4 patch has a free hand flower, one daisy, and one pansy.  As usual camera fades the colors. 

Someday, I am going to buy a decent camera.  Keep promising myself this, but each time I get anywhere near a store I forget about it. 

While doing the flowers, I didn't like the way the center looked, so I took an idea from Leah Day and filled centers.  This made them nicer and more interesting, like embroidery.  The butterflies are not exactly the same size per butterfly, but still like the way they look.  With practice maybe the next time I try this I will be more consistent.  I also noticed that with a little tweaking, butterfly could become an angel.

To see the stitching better, zoom in on a photo.

Hello from Janesville! I was tripping through the Quilting Gallery's blog listing and was happy to see another quilter in the area. I love your work, and am thoroughly jealous of the fact that you have a long arm machine. I personally have a Little Gracey II frame, and while I'm grateful for it, it really only has a 4" wide workspace.

Thank you very much. I love quilting, like all quilters. But now that I have the long arm, I really love it more. Always get so excited when I get a new customer and new quilt to do. Business has been pretty slow, hoping will pick up soon. Please send me pics of your quilts always like seeing other quilters work.
