I will admit I cheated! The center of this quilt is a panel. It's for our newest grandson who will be 4 months old tomorrow. And he will be here to visit this weekend (and they are staying for 2 weeks) so had to have a new quilt for him. I did try my hand at some free motion quilting on the panel section - around the stars, the bear on the horse, the hills, etc. First time I have ever tried FMQ - it's not perfect but it is done.
