When I quilt without marking a pattern on the quilt I call it "free-motion hand quilting." I can do it with Baptist Fans but I'm not sure how well I would do with a more complicated pattern.
When I quilt this way I don't worry too much about things like that little crooked first curve on the green block. (It's taken me a long time to overcome my tendencies toward perfection.) Once it's washed and dried no one will notice that little crook on this baby quilt (unless they go over with with a close eye).
I decided against the monkey fabric for the back because even after a third wash it seemed scratchy. I found the fabric below earlier this week and decided it would be fine. It's super soft.
Choosing fabric, layering and basting this quilt, and beginning the quilting was my goal for the September OMG (One Monthly Goal) challenge at Red Letter Quilts. I'm linking to One Monthly Goal Linkup: Celebrating September Finishes! to celebrate. Thanks for hosting, Heidi.
Today I'm linking to Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and to Finished or Not Friday at Busy Hands Quilts. Thanks, ladies.
I hope you have a great weekend, whatever you do.
