As promised in Friday's post, I worked diligently on this quilt in my spare moments over the weekend and am happy to report that it has been finished and delivered to my friend who will be presenting it to Sweet Savannah's Mama-to-be on Saturday at a baby shower.
Here's the quilt being free motion machine quilted. This is the second quilt that I've attempted this type of quilting on and it went very well.
I put my ironing board at a lowered position behind my sewing machine to make a surface for the quilt to lay on, so that it wouldn't hang over the back. This helps the quilting process immensely.
This is the back of the quilt. This is the first time I've incorporated some blocks into the backing fabric and I love how it turned out!

I have a queen size quilt that is basted and ready to quilt. I think I'm ready to tackle free motion quilting it! Its very hard work, but so worth it when you get done.
