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!
