Free-Motion Quilting - A Baby Quilt

I helped a friend finish her quilt this week. She finished her quilt top and made the backing then offered me the chance to practice my free-motion quilting skills by quilting it for her. So I bought some batting and matching thread and prepped the layers for the machine.

I really like the pattern she used and I think I might have to use the same one for a future project. She said it went together easily which is always a nice thing.

Since the backing has a swirly design, I decided to stitch swirls in the quilting. I am always so nervous when working on someone else's project. I especially worry that there might be a few puckers in the back of the quilt but I discovered I can help alleviate that by pinning, pinning and more pinning. Once I was done, there were no puckers! Yay!
