   I made this baby quilt earlier this year.  My cousin was having his first baby, a girl!  He and his wife named their little girl after our Gran (Madyson Marilee) and I am so excited about that.  (I miss my Gran!)  I used the Yellow Brick Road pattern on this quilt.  I love that pattern.  I have used it 4 times now.  It works up really quickly and the directions are super easy to follow.

Here is the top as a flimsy:



I went with pink and green because those were the colors they had for bedding on their registry.  I chose an all over stippling pattern because it's quick!  Here is the finished quilt:



A close up of the quilting, the binding reminded me of a candy cane:


Thanks for looking!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

This is a truly inspiring little quilt and you forced me to sign in to reply.  Smiley And that is so sweet about naming her after your Gran! The quilt is very sweet and I like the colors and pattern. It looks really well made! Was the stippling hard to do? I have only ever made one quilt and I just quilted the lines across the top.

Free motion quilting is not hard, it just takes practice!  Mine is no where near perfect but I enjoy doing it.  I try not to stress that some areas are more quilted than others and that I might have a pucker or two on the back.  Plus I find stippling a lot more fun than straight line quilting.  I am quilting a twin sized quilt right now using straight line quilting and I am having to force myself to work on it.  I am so bored and it soooo  slow!  Here are some great resources for free motion quilting:

Christina's in my local quilt guild and she is amazing.  She gave a demo last meeting that was awesome to watch.  Very helpful!

Elizabeth is great at free motion quilting also!  She teaches a class locally that some friends took and loved.

Leah Day has a ton of designs on here.  Some are pretty complicated but are great for spurring ideas.

I say just try it on a couple of fat quarters and keep practicing.
