Sandbox Quilt

This is my 2nd finish for my 3rd Quarter FAL goal and also my ALYOF July goal. This kit was done by Avlyn Creations I think at least 10 years ago. I have had this quilt top pieced for quite some time. 

I was going to piece a really simple quilt to practice using the quilting machine and free-motion quilting but since I already had good batting I decided to just start quilting. The quilt design had some swirls in the center panel so I went with a swirl pattern for the quilting.

This is the back side. My swirls are pretty random. I just threw in whatever size swirls fits as I go along.



Here's the front of the quilt after I took it off the frame and trimmed it. I am pretty happy with how it turned out for my first time on this quilting machine. I am really loving the whole free-motion quilting experience. 



I am so happy this quilt is done. The kit came with a striped binding. Anywho, I have a couple more of these kits still in the ziploc bag with a two page instructions if anyone wants to buy it to take it off my hand. This is a large child size quilt.

The randomness of the size of the swirls is what makes it so perfect for this quilt. Great job!
