    Baby Quilt for Charity

    I purchased 8 yards of this fabric for only $7.99 at the thrift store (score!) and am going to make 3 or 4 baby quilts out of it, practicing a different FMQ motif on each one. This time I did a concentric circle that sort of looks like windy clouds. Fun to do and by the time I was done I had the motif down pat.

    great idea! and sooooo cute! I often use these "boarder fabrics" as backings. The kids (and Moms) are going to love these. Nice quilting skills too.

    How cute! You are so clever to learn and gift at the same time.

    Great job. I'm working on this motif too and you do look like you've got the hang of it.

    Congrats on a marvelous find! The fabric is so cheerful. I bet you did the happy dance when you saw the price. Your quilting swirls look great. Have fun practicing your free-motion quilting designs. When I saw this fabric, I pictured a large Kite flying through the sky. Please show us the rest of your quilting design choices.

    I, too, find that working on a simple project for practicing FMQing is so much more fun than stitching on a muslin sandwich. I use kid friendly panels and outline/fill in areas for practice. Love your "find" of a cute border fabric!

    Very nice quilt made with the border fabric. Your FMQ looks very nice. The fabric choice (great find) certainly gives opportunity for the quilting motif. I will be anxious to see what you do with the next ones.

    So pretty! We've had a lot of wind here as spring creeps in. your quilting captures in fabric the feel of the spring atmosphere.
