The Free Motion Quilting Project: Quick and Easy Baby Quilt

Quick and Easy Baby Quilt
This past week I was sent a pack of Tonga Treats from Timeless Treasures to play with. These precut packs of batik fabrics are awesome treats for beginning quilters because each pack comes with a super easy quilt pattern. Just grab a treat and you're ready to create a new quilt!

The pattern includes instructions for piecing a beautiful quilt top, but the quilting instructions say "quilt as desired." What are we going to do?!

Not all quilts need to be quilted to death! I could tell just by looking at this quilt top that the fabrics were too busy for a quilting design to be very visible.

I also wanted to quilt this project quickly so it would be ready to give as a gift for my cousin who is expecting a new baby next month. The best choice in both situations is an All Over Style design. I choose our design for the month Sharp Stippling and I couldn't be happier with the results. Click Here to find the tutorial.

I really enjoyed working with Timeless Treasures to create this tutorial. This particular pack of 5-inch Tonga Treat precut squares should be arriving in quilt shops soon.

Let's go quilt,
