    Snowball baby quilt is finally done!

    A while ago, I asked for your opinion on whether to snowball the blocks for the quilt http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...e-t155721.html Thanks for everyone's thoughtful opinions.

    I finished the piecing shortly thereafter, but had to wait for a part to my frame for the quilting. I fmq'd around each animal in the RW blocks. I put a bunny quilting in each plain block. I'm not an artist, but I drew the bunny on paper and used disappearing pen to draw it on the blocks. Then, I wanted to serpentine quilt in the sashings to make it look a little plaid-like. That drew in the fabric too much, so I shadow quilted around the snowballs. I like the way that turned out better. Since my DGD waiting over 2 years for her quilt, I made it bigger so she doesn't outgrow it right away... 60x40. Some of the blocks have spots on them, but my DD says she likes that to show that they are antiques.

    I don't know how Fiona feels, but I love it. It is similar to a redwork wallhanging quilt my great great made us. I loved that too.

    A great learning quilt and so pretty in red. You did a wonderful job. It looks great in the snowball pattern.

    What a great quilt! I love the antique redwork blocks. The bunny template for the quilting is really cute. I never thought of just using paper... sometimes I don't have template plastic. Good job
