Last week I showed you my Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) on a doll quilt, which was made to match the fairy panel quilt. I've been practising FMQ on a second doll quilt, this time to match the Peter Rabbit quilt.
Once again, I've done a log cabin style quilt, made entirely from random width scraps of fabric. Even the batting is pieced together, using left over scraps.
This time I tried a rectangular shape for FMQ. As you would expect it's becoming easier with practice and thanks to my newly acquired quilting gloves. They really do make a difference!!! It only took two sittings to complete the FMQ for this little quilt.
I used binding left over from my Scrappy Blocks Quilt. Ha ha... I really miscalculated the binding on that quilt, as I still have quite a bit left.
I totally forgot to take a photo of the back of the quilt, so you'll just have to believe me when I say there's hardly any puckering on the back. I really am getting better at basting. I've used the same backing fabric as the original Peter Rabbit quilt.
This little mini quilt ended up at 18.5" x 19.5"...
Just the right size for Bubba and Hop Hop.
