Bloggers Quilt Festival Entry Spring 2010

I love the bloggers quilt festival! It's so much fun to look at every quilt and get ideas for the coming six months.

Here's my entry:

I made this quilt for a friend having a baby boy. It was a really good project to try out new stuff. This was the first time I've quilted shapes using my machine. I was astonished at how easy it was to do--
  • First I found clip art online.
  • I printed it out and then cut out the shape.
  • Using a water-soluble marker, I traced the pattern onto the fabric.
  • Then I quilted the pattern using free motion quilting
  • The stippling helps to give each design added depth
  • Then I sprayed the markings with water to make them disappear
The quilt was pretty easy to put together, but I thoroughly enjoyed the process.
