    It's Not a Crib Quilt Anymore...

    I started this thread when I had put together a bunch of rejected audition blocks: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t173278.html It was a crib size, and I asked if it would be appropriate for a baby.

    I had some fabric left over and decided that I would put a scrappy checkerboard border around it to make it into a lap-size quilt. I'm going to put it over my couch in the living room. The blues match my wall pretty well.

    This is the first quilt that I did all of the quilting on my domestic machine. It's mostly stitch-in-the-ditch, but I did timidly venture into a bit of free motion. The vine was fun to do. I may try feathers on my next quilt.

    Wow!! Your quilt is great. I love the way it is off balance in design. It almost looks like a huge compass in the middle of a group of constellations. Great design. Your quilting is great too. Congrats!

    It is pretty and coordinates well with your wall. Congratulations on starting to free motion. I haven't dared yet.

    Is there a pattern for it? I really think it is a neat quilt and I'm making graduation quilts (3 this year for gkids).

    Looks absolutely amazing on your couch. You did a fabulous job making it into a lap quilt. It's right where it belongs!

    Missed the earlier posts re your quilt. It's beautiful. Is it your own design? It's very artistic and yet traditional.
