Baby Madison's Quilt

Amy at Park CityGirl is hosting a virtual quilt show. She has asked us to post about our favorite quilt and the story behind it. Since I have only completed 3 quilts it was easy to pick a favorite. This baby quilt was my first attempt at free motion quilting. I was so scared but I am happy with how it turned out. Below is the original post about this quilt. Thanks for stopping by!



I finished my first baby quilt - and just in time! Little Madison was born yesterday. I'm waiting to get her weight and length before I give it to her so I can embroider it on the back. I'm very happy with how it turned out - this was my first attempt at free motion quilting. I followed this tutorial with a few changes in the size.


Here is close-up of the quilting. I hope Madison's mommy loves this as much as I do!!
