Baby Basketweave Quilt

I have just quilted a little baby quilt made by Bridie.  Bridie based her quilt on the Denyse Schmidt design from her book Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration.  The blocks have been scaled down considerably - from the original block size of 13.5 inches to 5.5 inches.

Bridie's quilt has been made for a new born baby girl in a modern colour combination of grey and teal blue.

I had fun quilting this quilt, trying to emphasise the basket weave effect with the quilting.  The horizontal lines have been quilted with small figure eight loops with a row of pebbles quilted on the teal vertical sections.
Best wishes Bridie for the new-born baby - I hope this little quilt is received and used with joy.
