    Baby Quilt for a Little Boy

    I quilted this for a lady and her newborn grandson. She let me do whatever I like and so I tried to pull out items from the center panel. The print is from the nursery rhyme "hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle".

    I really am feeling brave on the long arm! I still need to practice with rulers but am having a lot of fun with free hand quilting and I'm really itching to try a whole cloth now!

    If that is you doing "free motion" on your long arm, you are good!!!! I love that you pulled theme items out and would love to see a whole cloth done by you.

    that is great!!! I think you definitely need to try a whole cloth. Even if it's a crib size. I think you would have lots of fun with it.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!
