Hi ... my name is Colleen and I am a wife and mother living under the sun in San Diego, California. I have one son and one daughter and three dogs ... My furry children. I created this blog so I can ... well, what else? Talk about quilting ... and the other things most important in my life ... family and friends!

Hearts for a baby
At least I think this was a baby quilt ... Isn't it cute?
I don't normally do real detailed custom quilting, but I felt like this quilt really lent itself to something different. I had a design I saw from Green Fairy Quilts that I wanted to try
The design down the middle of the border ... It was really fun and I like the way it came out. The only trick was I had to turn the quilt after I did most of it so I could get the side borders done. It was a little time consuming, but better than rolling forward and back.
I love the spirals in the inner border
Just did a little loopy design in the outer border
Wavy lines through the hearts and a fun flower design in the half square triangle blocks.
She loved it!
It was all free motion and I didn't mark anything. Omni thread in the top and bobbin in a creamy white. What fun! Thank you Judy for entrusting me with another beautiful quilt.
