Mom's Baby Quilts

Tonight I quilted a lot! I quilted a tablerunner for a co-worker for Christmas, then got busy on mom's quilts. I quilted Animal Crackers using a pink verigated King Tut thread. I'm finally getting my tension where I want it to be and I'm pleased with how the stippling turned out on this quilt. I'll take it to her tomorrow after work so she can put the binding on it. It'll be a sample for the store. The kits are already made for it.

Here's a close up of the borders. I love the light pink with giraffes' and the stripes.

Then I quilted a baby quilt for her granddaughter Little Miss M. for Christmas. I wasn't as happy with the loops as I thought they showed up too much. I used a Sulky 30 wt. thread that she picked out and while I didn't have any problems with the thread, I thought it was a little heavy.

Tomorrow night I have to finish the binding on the tablerunner and make a couple other gifts. I'll be busy trying to get all my gifts done, but I wanted to get these quilted for mom.

I think the "loopy" quilting looks terrific on the quilt. Good job!
