progress with projects

I started this project last year with Sarah and her FYB Makealong.... I put it away and have done other things.... Last week I finished the red stitching with my Tuesday night group... I had some leftover KiwiBerry Bali strips from another quilt... No measuring...I just put them on the borders... then I did some machine quilting.... I want to put something in the middle???... like buttons...can't remember what I thought of last year.... Also not sure how to quilt around the words??... any suggestions would be welcomed...
This is the baby quilt ready to quilt... not sure how I am quilting it yet... I know it will have words sewn in.... precious and other sweet words.... Smiles and hugs....Caryl


  1. Your little quilt is cute. Love the "QD".
    You could cross hatch around the words. Or stipple. Or do kinda like a scallop around the words and echo quilt . Just some ideas.
    The zebra and pink quilt is so cute!

  2. Love the baby quilt and the stitchery.

  3. Both projects are very cute!
    I would just do an all-over something small over the stitchery... some kind of small leaves or just meandering doodles!
