January OMG - Complete!

My One Monthly Goal project this month was to machine quilt this baby quilt. I'm thrilled with how it turned out! This quilting project was also a great example of how 15 minutes here and 15 minutes there can be a productive way to work! 

I knew I wanted to do a crosshatch pattern in the background, but then at the GLMQG meeting last weekend, I was admiring the speaker's vest--it had two different sizes of crosshatching on it. So I borrowed that idea, doing a 1" crosshatch at the top and bottom, and a 2" crosshatch in the middle. 
Like my quilt model? It was too rainy to go outside, so he volunteered to hold it for pictures

I outlined the animals three or four times with free motion quilting, and then ended the crosshatch lines at the outermost outline. 

I love taking texture shots! 

So happy to finally have this quilted! 

Thanks again to Heidi at Red Letter Quilts for organizing OMG for 2016.
