This is another little bassinet quilt for the Maternity Unit at out local hospital. They are such a great size for practicing my machine quilting. You can see how the variegated thread used here shows up much better on a solid fabric than a patterned one.
This quilt was quilted in a row-by-row way. You start with one line in one pattern and then add another one and so on until it looks as complex as you want. You can see it better on the back.
I've been getting lots of ideas of patterns and heaps of useful tips from "Machine Quilting Solutions" by Christine Maraccini, a book which I've borrowed from my good friend Suz over at All The Good Ones Are Taken.
I think I need to invest in a really good machine quilting book for myself - anyone got any suggestions?
