    Finally was able to finish the quilting for my hummingbird quilt. For the first time, I used my embroidery machine to quilt the design in the while squares. I think it turned out nice, but I don't think I'll try to use my embroidery machine for anything larger than a lap quilt. It was very interesting getting it hooped right and then arranged around the machine so the design would stitch out. Enjoy!

    It's lovely! I love hummingbirds. I like the use of the quilted design in the solid squares. This is so bright and cheerful.

    Love your bright cheerful quilt. Watch out if you take it outside. The real hummingbirds are going to want to claim this quilt as their own.
