Foxes and Hedgehogs Wholecloth Baby Quilt

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


I recently made a few baby quilts in order to practice quilting wavy lines on Gratitude for the custom king Postcard From Sweden quilt.  I figured I could make the lines by hand, but since Gratitude is computerized, why not let her do the work?  


The first is a wholecloth foxes and hedgehogs quilt.  The quilting is top to bottom wavy lines with a stop and a start at every line.  I soon realized that this would take a lot of time on a king size quilt, stitching out one narrow row, stopping, moving the machine back to the left side, and beginning again, so I began looking online for a digital edge-to-edge pantograph that stitched both directions several times before stopping.  I found one!  And that's a quilt for another post.
