Lanaya's Quilt

I'm going to visit Lanaya and her Mom today. I hope she loves her quilt. I machine quilted it following the square patches. I used a combinations of heavy and light quilting, as well as curvy lines and straight lines. It's quite eclectic and I like it

It's hard to see the quilting on the front, so I'm showing you portions of the back. There's lots of texture and I'm sure it'll wear just fine. I quilted some hearts here and there in the quilt and I quilt wrote Lanaya's name in a few places, although it's hard to see. I also signed my name in a small sqaure the front of the quilt. It's very discrete.

Sometimes when quilters give new mothers quilts, they don't feel they can use quilts and want to keep them for good. I'm going to be sure to tell her that it's the best compliment to a quilter to see a mom using the quilt. I'll tell her if she wears it out, I'll make her another.

Spectacular work, Gail. "Eclectic quilting" as you term it is my favourite too. I like to see different things quilted on a top; it really adds character. The new Mom will be so excited with this quilt.
