I finished the quilt for Julia's dancing teacher and I LOVE IT!!!!!  I don't want to give it away.  This is the first time I've done free motion quilting and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.  I really enjoyed doing this type of quilting compared to straight line quilting, no stopping and starting all the time just non stop quilting and it didn't take very long to do either. 

Here it is.  The photos aren't the best it was a horrible rainy day today.

I really enjoyed working on this and I will definately be making more of these baby quilts.

A big thank you to Julia for holding up the quilt for the photos.  Being a cloudy day today I had to take alot of photos to finally get a good one and her poor little arms were hurting after holding it for so long.  I think she deserves a chocolate after her hard work. 

Have a great weekend.
