Ruler Work on a Baby Quilt

Hi all!

I was looking for another smaller project to load onto my frame and I remembered that I had this baby quilt I pieced together from a charm pack.

I had never decided how I wanted to quilt it so I put it away for a while but now seemed like a good time to bring it out!

 

I loaded it onto my frame and decided that I would do all ruler-work on it.  I decided on Continuous  Curve in the blocks and ditch-work and single hatching in the borders.  Since I usually will just do an  all-over pattern on a baby quilt this was new territory for me.

 

But, needless to say, I am pretty pleased with the way that it turned out!  It was definitely more labor-intensive than an all-over pattern  but I really like the effect and I love the borders!  I think I picked too steep of a curve for the Continuous Curve, if I am being honest, but I do like the over-all look :-D

I used a 40 weight Filtech Glide thread in cream for all of the quilting - top and bottom with a flannel fabric on the back.  My go-to thread for quilting and my go-to backing for baby quilts!

Now I just need to find a destination for this baby quilt!  Not bad for some Sunday quilting!

PS if you want to follow along with me on Instagram I would love to have you!  I try to post every couple of days - or - like today - twice!  Me on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/sunshower153/
