CCQ #35 - Chubby Rails

I needed to make quick work of my charity quilt for this month.  Club meeting is tomorrow and I just got it finished yesterday,  and I cut up a nice kit for someone to take home and stitch up for next month.  It is pretty butterflies, alternating with yellow and royal blue trim.  The kit has everything, cut pieces for top, batting, backing, prepared binding  and this basic project sheet.




 Feel free to download a copy for yourself.




Here is my version of the quilt, 40 x 48.  I was not satisfied with  the proportion of the rails, and so I modified the dimensions in the pattern sheet.


No need to look too closely at the quilting.  I have recently ventured into free motion quilting.  I do practice everyday.  This is the first quilt I actually used it on.  I SITD along all the blocks, then swirled in the centers.  I had a difficult time moving the quilt around.  I wonder if it's because the backing is fleece?  I am using the supreme slider.  I had better control with my little practice quilt sandwiches.   I shall not abandon the FMQ ship yet.

Today I'm linking up with Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts  and  Susan of Quilt Fabrication.  Be sure to visit these sites to see what other quilters are sharing today.

I also joined a great link-up on Friday with  TGIFF at Quilt Matters.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
