I finished another baby quilt. I call this one the candy quilt because the starburst fabric was called candy something on the bolt end--it works.
I made it for someone expecting a girl in February but then found out she likes lighter shades of blue, green and yellow. I'm not sure how she'd feel about fuchsia stripes. I have some medium shades of fabric I can make another quilt with.
The striped fabric has straight quilting and the circles and starburst fabric have free motion stippling. The fuchsia stripes were a challenge because I wanted fuchsia quilting thread and don't have any (didn't want to order any either). White stood out too much until I struck upon mimicking the starburst with little quilted stars. Each star was done separately which meant I had to sink all the thread ends into the batting. I never just cut the tails; I do the same as with hand quilting and put them through the batting layer then trim. I'm pleased with it. Now it gets rolled up and put in an under-the-bed box until someone has a girl.
