    When the word got out that I had started quilting...I had a good friend of mine ask me to do a quilt for her granddaughter...using a FEW outfits...Well my first thought was..."how hard can it be?" The FEW outfits turned into 39 in all...finished quilt measures...68 x 94...it sort of grew...using the outfits that she wanted in full created the center squares...all of the onesies and other outfits were the borders. I have kept a log of photos and dates and time spent on this project...the photos attached are not the best...I hope to take a better finished photo when I'm done. My friend is the red head in the photo...she and another friend of mine were helping with some of the final touches...She told me that she thought this would be sooooooo easy and simple...a ton of LOVE has gone into this...I only hope that I have done it justice. Please give me your thoughts on this...

    All of the sewing is done...with all of the different fabrics...what type of quilting pattern should I do? I really don't want to quilt over the outfits. I surged all of the onesies so they wouldn't run...as for the other outfits...there are so many different fabrics I'm afraid of getting too busy with the quilting pattern. Please HELP.

    I would just do outline quilting around the outfits. Keep it simple.
