Quilting.......Baby Quilt

We are expecting a new baby in our family...

My niece is expecting a baby boy!

She is decorating the nursery with farm animals.

I found this fabric panel in my cupboard...
I bought it from Daisy Kingdom 12 years ago.

Daisy Kingdom......Tractor Teddy Quilt Panel

Quilt Panels are fast and FUN!
They are a great way to try out new
quilting techniques you want to experiment with.

I want to try the Bump-Back method of feathers.
With a panel, I can relax and try this feathering technique.

This Variations Teddy Brown Variegated Thread
should be just right on this fabric panel.

This $5 fabric panel quilted up nicely...

I fumbled around stitching out the 
in the border, but became more comfortable with the
technique by the time I was all done.

I stitched random plumes into the interior portion
of the quilt...

I wanted to put lots of stitching into this quilt
so it will hold up after years of washing.

I chose a black print fabric for the binding.

Once the label is sewn on,
I can get this in the mail to my niece.

I wasn't alone while I stitched today...

The yearling cattle are just outside the Thread Shed...

They are good company for me while I sew!
