This is a UFO that was languishing for quite a while … the blocks are left overs from a jelly roll quilt and some creative piecing as there was not enough blocks to complete a whole quilt … It was fun to make! I did quilt it with wavy serpentine lines. Pretty boring! In hindsight – I should have just done an all-over free-motion and it would have been faster! And my machine did not like doing the serpentine lines. When I started, I had tension issues and I finally changed the needle. That helped. Then towards the end of the quilting, it started skipping stitches. Groan. So the machine has gone back to the machine doctor … they have a great warranty on their work. It was only the beginning of August when I got it back, so it should be a free repair.

Those blocks make an adorable baby Quilt! The lime green is so fresh and works so well:). I hope your machine is better now:)
Thank you Tracy! Unfortunately, my machine has been in the hospital for over a week and hasn’t seen the doctor yet 😦 Hopefully soon!
A very simple but lovely quilt. The colors surrounded by white and the green make a series of,pictures. Congratulations!
Thank you Paula!
I’m loving the bits of ORANGE popping through your design!! Prefect for Baby and PERFECT for this month’s Rainbow Scrap Challenge, too.
OK .. I must admit, I haven’t partaken in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, but I’m sure at least one of my scrappy quilts will fit into all of the rainbow challenges!
Very sweet quilt Gail!
As for the serpentine lines, did you go forward/backward or side to side?
I find my machine performs better side to side…although it feels really odd to be stiching sideways. I have to check myself often as my bed tends to lean after a while! Lol
Thanks Terry. I had the walking foot on, put on the serpentine stitch and went from corner to corner and then around 2″ intervals … I know what you mean about your machine performs better going in one direction … I’ve learned that it’s ME that performs better in one direction! (Ha Ha)
I think it is really cute. Great way to use scraps!
Thanks … and orphan blocks as well!
Adorable baby quilt, and I really like the serpentine grid you quilted! Hope your machine is just having a bad day and it’s nothing serious. 🙂
Thanks, Rebecca. I’m sure it’s just the timing. Although I love my Janome 8900 for the wide throat space – it often has timing issues.
