Post 44-An Exciting Day and Tracy's Quilt

Today was a huge day for Miss Mia. She took her first steps by herself today! She didn't seem to understand what all the fuss was about, but she kept me entertained all day with practicing! I sure do love this girl (though I have to say I'm not in love with her preferred method of communication-screaming)!
Her favorite place to play while I'm quilting is under the quilt frame/machine. Some things never change. So many people have told me how much fun they had under their mother's/grandmother's 'hand' quilting frames.

This is a beautiful quilt Tracy made for her granddaughter.

And a closeup of the back. Its a little hard to see the detail of the quilting in this picture, but I alternated a square scroll design with a square box design. I thought this gave it a modern yet feminine feel. My design inspiration almost always comes from the fabric of the quilt. The cute charm pack
Tracy used for this quilt had both flowers (feminine) and straight lines (modern). I stitched in the ditch around each square then let the computer do its thing inside each square.


  1. I love the detail you always incorporate into your work Mindy. It always impresses me.
