Getting Better All The Time

I finished another donation quilt using that strip quilt from maryquilt.com
I quilted the border in a free motion back and forth. It is very organic looking isn't it?
The center of the quilt was quilted in an all-over floral looking free motion motif.
The outer border is another floral motif.

The binding was machine applied using the flat felled foot for my sewing machine, I believe I have blogged about this method. 

Size: 53x70
Signature thread: gray on the top and a variegated gold in the bobbin
Batting: 80% cotton /20% polyester

I am linking up to JudyL's Design Wall Monday.


  1. Wonderful finish! It's such a "happy" quilt.

    I'm going to search for your post on binding with the flat felled foot.

  2. I love your border free motion quilting. Great job!!

  3. Great looking quilt. That's a very fun design, and I like the colors!

  4. Great fun! I love that you are really using that new quilting machine and you are getting better and can truly see it. So many of my friends practically gave up after trying for a while. Determination on top of talent..and there you go. So neat! I can't see you selling yourself short or this machine anytime soon :-) Way to go, Paula!

  5. Very nice! It is so springy and happy. Love the quilting. I've tried free motion but gave up too soon. I'll have to give it another go.
