It doesn't look much different from the first or the second pink cot quilts - all those little scraps seem to be going on for ever.
Doing the swirly quilting wasn't particularly enjoyable because it was a job to see where I was going with all the busy prints, but once I had finished I was pleased with the result.
The strawberry binding is similar to that on the second pink cot quilt , but these strawberries are bigger and pinker.
And here is the back. I love this shade of raspberry pink. Shame about the irregularities in the size of the quilting just below the centre, but no self-respecting baby is going to care.
This evening I made the sandwich and now have another cot quilt ready for quilting - but this time I have launched into a completely different range of colours. For the moment I am all pinked out.
Here goes for week 29...
Many thanks to Dora, Maartje, Quilt Musings, Judy, Hilary, LeeAnna, Quilting Reader's Garden, and Shannyn for linking up last time.
If you love free motion quilting, whether you are a beginner just taking the plunge, or you have reached the stage where you can do ostrich feathers with your eyes shut and still achieve perfect symmetry, then please link up.
Remember, FMQ is FMQ, whether your machine was made last week, or it is older than your granny.
Here are the very easy and slightly elastic rules:-
1. Link up with any recent post, ideally from the last week but within the last month, which features a free motion quilting project, whether it is a work in progress or a finish.
Or, because it is still January, link up to show your favourite FMQ project finished in 2014.
2. Link back to this post in your own post and/or grab the linky button for your blog's sidebar.
3. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and say hello in the comments box.
4. The link up will remain open for four days, from midnight to midnight GMT for the long weekend, Friday to Monday.
So far quilters from USA, England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany, Holland, New Zealand and France have taken part. The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.
Welcome to Vintage Fox, the latest follower - thank you for joining!
