    Hi everyone! This is my first post, but not my first quilt. I made this baby play mat with a charm pack of Moda Bliss. I thought the back was lookng a little plain so added the words in raw edge applique. If you look closely you can see the different dye lot of white around the star. Yikes!

    This is the front of the play mat

    If you clicked "preview" the picture disappeared. Try attaching the pic again and just submit the post.

    I did free motion quilt this. My only suggestion is buy some quilting gloves, it makes it much easier on the shoulders. Other then that just go for it! It's not as bad as it looks and I find it goes much faster then expected.

    Thank you all for the kind words. I think the orginal idea for "eat, play, sleep. repeat" came from the Moda Bake Shop.
