A Quilt for Max

Here’s a little quilt for baby Max, just in time to meet him at his baby shower.

I used four fat quarters, so it ended up a little smaller than I would normally make a baby quilt. I just couldn’t pass up those little elephants. But this way it can fit in the car seat and will hopefully travel well. It’s my first attempt at free-motion quilting and I did some loops and curves to somewhat mimic the pattern in the green fabric. I found the hardest part was timing my foot and hands to work together, so that my sewing speed matched how fast I was moving the quilt. Baby steps. 

He's so sweet.
