The animal-themed crib quilt I started awhile ago for my niece's first baby is coming along well. Today I finished machine quilting all the solid-colored patches, and made good headway on the animal- and word-print ones as well. I had a lot of fun deciding on quilting motifs for each of the solid colors. Check these out:
|Double hearts with a looping meander for the pale pink patches|
|Swirls for the orange patches...my favorite|
|Sunbursts for the yellow patches|
|Pea pods and snaky curves in the green patches|
|Waves for the blue patches|
|Stars with a large meander for the violet patches|
I still have 3 rows of print patches to quilt, and then it's on to the binding. I can see the finish line from here!
