Another recycled fabric quilt!
I went crazy doing free motion quilting- I messed with as many different patterns as I could think of in the blocks. I dont know as many patterns I some people - and, Ive never been good at doodles. I am better at making patterns.
This quilt is huge - a big bad KING size one.
The batting is not recycled in this quilt - it is a new cotton batting - Im pretty excited to see what happens when it shrinks a little bit when I dry it.
Working with recycled T-shirt fabrics - I have come to accept that I will have some tucks and folds in the quilted tops. I am more interested in color and pattern anyhow -- I forgive those tucks.
You can see I used a straight Stitch to applique the pieces. I sold the Zig-Zag machine and am using my Straight Stitch machine now for everything.
I took these pics outside before all of the quilting was finished.

Here are two more Baby quilts I made with Pinks .. I love the over the top quilting on the second one and the -- sorta -- roses and random blue flower on the first one.
Ive been looking at the gardens around my house and taking pics of them for inspiration.
