Tracing design and Echo quilting!

Make a baby quilt out of “cheater fabric” and practice outlining and Echo quilting.  Cheater fabric is fabric that already has a quilt design on it.  This fabric has the Dresden Plate quilt block printed on it.  A baby will absolutely love it!  Practice tracing the design then go around the outside of the design using your free motion quilting foot as a guide.  You should try different types of batting to create the look you are striving for.  Polyester batting gives a fluffy blanket look and cotton gives a flat antique look to the quilting.  You can use a long arm machine or your home sewing machine to create this adorable quilt!  You get to practice your quilting skills and a baby gets a quilt; it’s a win-win!
