Niece's quilt

My mother-in-law made this for her granddaughter (my niece).  I love the colors of it!

In the square parts I quilted more squares.  However, for the outer two squares I echoed the "underneath" square.  Then I put in a square that echoed the "top" square, and lastly echoed the inside white square.  It was more ruler work than I've ever done, but it went better than I expected.  I still need to work on going at a somewhat even speed so that the stitches are about the same size.

Around the outside of the boxes I did a single echo and then some loops.  I sort of did the loops like flower pedals.  If you use some imagination.

I did loops and double loops on the border.  While double loops aren't hard, they weren't as easy as I expected them to be either.

And a view from the back...the quilting shows up rather nicely.


  1. You did a great job! I still need to practice on my ruler work!

  2. the quilting looks good! Yep, lots of designs look easier than they turn out to me!


Thanks for commenting...I love seeing what you have to say!
