Quilting the baby quilt

Quilting a life sized quilt turns out to be quite different than quilting a little doll quilt.  I wasn’t patient enough to baste the quilt or pin it so I just started quilting.  It doesn’t help that I used a mix of cottons, poly cottons, and a flannel backing.  It seems like everything is stretching differently but so far so good.  Here’s what I’ve done with the quilt so far.

I’m using the blue painter’s tape as a guide.

    Thanks for the tip about the painter’s masking tape! I’m going to use it on my silk crazy quilt, it’s a great idea.
    Great to see you on Sunday,
