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!

Good job, "Punky" . Benjamin will probably enjoy many hours with that quilt!

So pretty and interesting too. Also love the label, I have as much fun making a label as I do making the quilt. Just watched a couple of Craftsy classes on walking foot machine quilting which along with ruler work is best for me as I'm no good at free motion at all! The teacher used painters tape to define areas as well as making registration lines to keep the quilting straight as she progressed across the quilt.
