    Last minute baby quilt I came up with...

    Hi all,
    Some pics for those of you who asked to see the baby quilt I made for baby Victoria's baby shower last wk...It was a last minute deal...I finished it at 4 in the morning the day of the shower..I am not usually THAT last minute...It all got off course when my sewing machine went "kaput" right before Christmas...I bought a small one to get me by until I could get my "dream machine" in (Janome Horizon 7700...I did get it, but haven't had a chance to even plug it in yet!! Sigh...).. Anyways, the small machine I used to get this quilt done was not the best at blanket or zigzag stitch...as a matter of fact it skipped and stuttered so much that I had to go over the same areas 2 and 3 times...and this was after changing threads, needles, etc..Even though its an inexpensive machine, I expected better of it, and am disappointed in it...thats another thread, tho, eh?..Please go easy on me, as I didn't do fmq in the flower or V squares, and I know I should have. I am still in the learning process of fmq...I keep wanting to get better at it, but admit I revert back to hand quilting a lot of the time (when I HAVE time...). Also, the border is not wavy, its the way it appears in the pic...
    Here are some pics, the last 2 are close up of long legged bird and giraffe fmq I did..I also did fmq teddy bear and heart in the other 2 squares:

    I do not have a machine that quilts, I piece quilts and send them out to have them quilted.
    I was wondering how you quilt on your machine, do you follow a pattern that you trace on your material,
    or these designs in the machine? Thanks.

    It looks so soft and sweet. You did a great job on it. I'm sorry you had machine trouble. It sounds like you are set up though with your new Janome. Have fun with it.
