"Framed" quilt

I made the quilt "Framed" from the book Simply Retro, by Camille Roskelley.
It was 5 blocks across and 5 blocks down, but I made it a little smaller for a baby quilt, 49" square.

I machine quilted it on the diagonal, and then the other direction to make little squares over the entire quilt.
I sewed next to the painter's tape, to get a straight line.
Then, I removed the painter's tape and used my walking foot to measure from the original line.

Whoops, I thought I cropped my feet out of the photo!

The fabric is Punctuation by American Jane.
The background fabric is an off white Kona.

I backed the quilt with a kiwi green minky, it's velvety soft!

I think the quilt turned out really well, I loved the pattern!
Now it's ready for a sweet little baby boy :)
