A Baby Quilt for my Neighbour

My new A1 quilting machine arrived last week and I have spent some time getting used to the differences.  I am happy to report that I am loving it.  The first quilts have now been quilted and I would like to share the very first quilt I quilted on my new machine.

The quilt is a beautiful baby quilt pieced from fabrics provided by my sister Rita from Red Pepper Quilts.  Rita and I spent an afternoon together cutting, piecing and pressing this little quilt - we had a lovely time sewing together - something we don't do together very often.  I am very lucky to be able to occasionally access her wonderful stash and her eye for colour and design.

The quilt was quilted with one of my favourite all-over patterns Splash which has given it great texture.  The quilt has been made for my neighbours who have just had a baby boy - hopefully it will be well used and loved.

This should be the first of many more quilts to be quilted on the new A1 machine.
