Second baby quilt of nine i have on my list to complete. Not including my daughter's. it's hoffman precut batiks but bought before they just began laser cutting. I didn't realize how off the cuts were until too late. Part of my better to be finished attitude i'm trying over the usual perfection i demand of myself. Totally less stressful that way! Machine pieced and hand quilted. I did swirly lines in the center to look like water, added a flange on the border and quilted bubbles in the border that get smaller and more clustered towards the upper right corner. I quilted the baby's name in orange on the bottom right in a stitch that reminds me of coral. Used warm and natural batting and a seahorse anti pill fleece as backing

I love the bargello effect you have achieved here. Such soothing colours - perfect for a baby.
