    T sent me a box of quilts.....the first two she needs for a baby shower...and they are so adorable!

    They are both backed with minkee....I try not to overdue quilting when they have minkee because you don't want to change the feel of that fabric...plus it is a baby quilt...I like to have heavy enough quilting to handle the washings..but loose enough to keep it soft.

    The 3-D pinwheels I stippled.....and then just traced a pinwheel to put one in each side setting triangle....I wanted to give it some interest without taking away from the design....wavy cross hatching in the rectangles.

    In the ducky quilt I just took each border and put a different design in it to break it up and give interest.....

    I quilted this on my INNOVA. No computer or pantograph quilting...all freehand.

    i also used HOBBS polydown batting.

    Thanks for looking.

    You are so unbelievable! Angels must guide your hands. I would put you up against the best anyday because your designs are thoughtful and lovable.

    They are both just perfect! It takes a talented quilter to know when to quilt a lot and when to not. OMG, my second post to Charismah's topics and I got all rhymey in both of them! :lol: :lol:

    Seriously, they are both just the right balance of quilting. I love that you quilted pinwheels on the pinwheel quilt. Nice touch.

    Those are so precious. And you Charisma are astounding.

    I don't know how you do so much.
