When our DD was visiting in January, she bought this panel and backing fabric to try her hand at her first quilt. But, life sort of got in the way of best laid plans--and little Ben arrived in May and her free time disappeared!! So, I brought the fabric back home when we visited in June--and finished it for her. I used 2" Painter's Tape to mark a grid and used my walking foot to stitch along both sides of the tape. Then I used a free-motion turtle idea from Lori Kennedy with some meandering to fill in the twelve large areas. The quilt label was made with my Bernina 8.1 software. Now Ben has a quilted play mat for floor tummy time!
