Another Baby Quilt and Machine Quilting

Hi all!

This is another baby quilt that I did as a commission. I really love this one. The bright colours are just wonderful and rich. They look like hand dyes don't they? But they are a collection from a couple of years ago by Benartex called Mardi Gras.

I pieced the binding as well to use up the small scraps that I had of the border fabrics. I just love the effect especially since there is so much colour in the border.

I took a picture of the back of the quilt so that you can all see the quilting. I really like the way that it turned out. I quilted it from the front but you can really see the thread on the back. I used a varigated yellow thread and quilted in my sun-burst / waves / fire pattern. I think that this is my favourite way to quilt right now.

There are quarter bursts in each of the corners with the waves and sun-bursts running all through the middle. You can just see one of the corner bursts in the upper right hand corner of this picture but you can see more from the front.

If you enlarge the picture you can really see what is going on with the quilting. I should mention as well that this was quilted by me on my domestic sewing machine.

I hope that you like it! Please let me know what you think!
