Pink Snowball 9 Patch Quilt Done!

I'm on a quilting roll this week! I started this baby quilt on Sunday afternoon and last night I got it quilted. It was fun to quilt since I was practicing the flowing hearts with the loops. I had a few places where they weren't quite hearts, but they weren't awful either. I used a Mettler Poly Sheen verigated which was interesting to work with and I had a few places where I had skipped stitches. I bought 4 spools of it, since there aren't much on them. I had 1 1/2 spools at home. I didn't even use one full spool! I guess I over estimated, but usually I don't have enough when I buy the small spools, so I wanted to be sure I had enough.

Here's a couple close ups of the quilting. The backing and binding are the same fabric as the triangle in the upper right corner of this snowball block. I put the binding on it last night and will get the hand sewing done today.
