    I wanted to share my lastest baby quilt. I am a hand quilter, but not a very good one, and would love suggestions on how to quilt this.

    If it was me, I'd tie this one ... or do some stitching in the ditch on the center piece of each block, again on one of the rectangles and, lastly, in the ditch between blocks. I love the bright colors and activity of this quilt. It's beautiful!!!! perfect for a baby and small child.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Adorable top! I would hand quilt around the animal in the center block. I would then quilt a line down the center of the wonky strip in a straight spiral moving outward. If you go down the middle on the strips, you will avoind most of the seams that are difficult to hand quilt through.

    I love the wonky. The colors are so bright and happy. I'm not a hand quilter so I am no help. But I sure enjoyed seeing it.

    Bright & happy is such a great description of this darling little quilt! I love it, but then again, I'm kinda wonky, too... LOL! I think I'd just quilt it in a really simple design since it's so busy. Busy & adorable!

    I love the scrappy, wonky look of this quilt. Your fabric choices make it a bright, cheerful, fun quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    Agree with Tartan's suggestion for the quilting.

    What a FUN quilt! When making baby quilts, I like to build teaching elements into it. Your quilt is perfect for teaching animal names, colors, pattern names such as polka dots, stripes, etc. Wonderful!

    Darling. Ditto to what everyone has said. You are very talented to do this. I have a hard enough time sewing on the machine, can't image what it would take for me to do this by hand. I know whatever you do it will be super. Please show us when you finish this fun quilt. BrendaK

    Thank you for your kind words. I did the quilt on the sewing machine, but am going to hand quilt it. The quilt was a very easy quilt to make. Because it is so wonky you really can't mess it up.

    I love your quilt! I like the fact each of the center squares are the same blue color that ties it all together for a coordinated look even though wonky. Great choice of fabs for this too! I HQ all my laps and minis and something simple would be a horizontal wave (slight one) through each row and then a vertical slight wave down the other 3 rows and that would keep any batting from shifting and would be close enough for this size quilt.
