Flower Quilt and Help Wanted

I picked up this panel at the Muncy Quilt Show and I got to work right way!

I saw the sample in a vendors booth and I loved all the bright colors. She had it quilted with overall pattern with flower design. The kit I purchased was packed very cute in this little bag.

It came with the fabric for the borders, but it wasn't enough so I added the yellow fabric.

I think it will be great for a wall hanging or a baby's quilt. I imagine after it's quilted I can add beads and buttons. I am still debating how should I quilt it? Any ideas how should I quilt it?

Some of you asked me about my quilting frame. I didn't use it, yet.
It's leveled and ready to go.
I am planing to quilt it on the frame. I try to load it but I am not sure if I am doing it right?

I have New Joy Standard Quilting frame. I am not sure if I have the backing right on the frame.

Would you quilting fairies have look at the frame and tell me if I have the backing right?
I really appreciate all your suggestions!

Thank you in advance for all your help!

Happy Stitching!

Adorable panel! Too bad there wasn't enough fabric in the kit...that should never be!!!

Have never used or seen a frame loaded to go... I'm sure someone will come to your rescue... 8-)

Have a great day!

Zlaty said...

Thanks a lot Tammy,

Your email is very helpful!

Have a nice day!

That is ADORABLE! But if you're giving it as a baby quilt I wouldn't add buttons or beads...that can be a choking hazard.

I don't know enough about frames to help you but can't wait to see what you do to it!

What a beautiful quilt...It has gorgeous colours!

Zlaty, the panel is so sweet! Is the borders part of the panel?

I think for your first quilt on the frame you can try meandering or even loops with a few leaves and flowers. Good luck with the quilting. I just know you will have a lot of fun.

What a cute quilt! Great kit. I really can't help you with the frame but I am sure you will get lots of help from other knowledgeable folks. Have a great evening!

I can't help you with the frame since I have never used one.

The panel is lovely and would be great either echo quilted around the flowers or with a meandering flower pattern. However you decide to quilt it i'm sure it will look great.
