Quilted and bound! Ready to start a new project.

My niece is getting married on Halloween, and I have the best embroidered quilt on my mind, so before I start that, I had to finish the quilt for my friend Amy's precious baby girl.  I finally saw her the other day and she is the cutest, happiest little babe!  So I quilted with my Tiara on the borders and with my Babylock on the hunters star.  Since I learned the easy-peasy way to add a flange, of course I had to put two on this quilt.  The white looks nice against the red and aqua binding.
All done.  I am going to wash it and dry it with a color catcher before I give it to Amy.  I'll pin another color catcher to it when I give it to her so she can use it when she washes it again.
Instead of free motion quilting  on the red corners,  I I just embroidered a bear in a train car to carry that theme to the edges.
For some reason, I couldn't bring myself to free motion on the hunters star.  It seemed to want the quarter inch situation all throughout.  So, out came the walking foot for the first time with the Babylock and I got started.  It took a very l o n g time!  Looks good though!

The dogs and I sat outside today while I added the binding.  Everyone was happy.  Tomorrow I start the Halloween wedding quilt!  It's going to be fun!
