IMG_8836This next assignment for my long arm certification course with APQS was right up my alley. Here you had three baby quilts you needed to create and choose three separate free motion all over designs to quilt with.  This is the type of quilting I like to do!  The blue quilt I used swirls on, which comes from the Hook shape we practiced quilting previously.  The back of the blue quilt has this fun vine pattern, which I thought the swirls and hooks would work great on. I made the Half Square Triangles from remnants of a charm pack and had the blue from an earlier project.  All stash fabric!

IMG_8835  The pink quilt I used loops, which is variations of the circles we used.  The goal is for the quilting density and quilt shapes to remain consistent.  There are a few loops probably a bit bigger than needed, but overall really liked doing this one.  The polka dot prints were all scraps from a quilt I made my niece for Christmas. I did have to go buy the light pink backing.  It is more pink than cream, but lighting shows it a bit different.  I did have the backing, a fun pink girl print. Almost all stash fabric! And of course bought more pink than needed, so adding that to my solids stash.

IMG_8834 The final quilt I did a big meander on, working from the S shapes in the practice quilting projects.  Here was a set of fabrics from left over fat quarters my mother had.  She made similar quilts like these for her charity group. So technically all her fabric, which she graciously donated!
