Getting Up Close with My Quilting - Whimsical Quilting

Whimsical quilting is just for fun!  On this baby quilt I stitched three wavy lines in the border with swirls in the corners.  Then I added a row of bubbles on the thin border and a wiggle line cross hatching in the blue/green checked section.  


Swirls in the swirly fabric and angled uneven cross hatching in the green section.






Wavy waves in the blue strip.






Here's a full view of the quilt before I embroidery stitched the binding.
A close up of the wavy lines in the borders and swirly corners.


This photo shows an up close view of the embroidery stitched binding.






This is a whimsical and creative way to quilt a baby quilt.

Beautiful! As a beginner at FMQ I am in awe! Can I ask what kind if batting you use? This looks so soft and fluffy, and mine seem flatter!

Thanks so much for sharing your quilting. All of it is beautiful, but this baby quilt is the bomb! I get so many great ideas from seeing what you're doing--again, thanks so much.
