Quilts hither and thither

 A quilt for one of my best friends who is having a baby any day now.
 I used free-motion quilting techniques from Leah Day, she's incredible. Her blog is a wealth of free-motion quilting information and inspiration - go and check it out.
 The Very Hungry Caterpillar print came from my local quilt shop which I love love love. I used a lot of green to go with this. I love the apple backing and the polka dot binding. 
I hope the little guy this is for gets a lot of use from it throughout the years.
 Each panel was quilted with a different pattern. I had lots of fun deciding which pattern to use where.
And last but not least another strip quilt made for another baby. Just quilted with vaguely parallel lines. Photo thanks to my mum.
