The embroidered heart baby quilt: quilted and bound: Finished!

The embroidered heart baby quilt is all quilted, the binding is sewn on and it is ready to be given to little Shirli. (Isn't it funny how names come and go-here Shirli (yes, that's Shirley) is a very popular name for babies right now.) The quilt was finished just in time-DD comes on Sunday for a visit and Shirli's Mom is DD's good friend since eighth grade so she'll deliver it.

Its machine quilted with curvey lines 1 1/2" apart plus a meander in and around the hearts and
a small free vine with leaves in the asymmetric border. I do like the look of the hand embroidery with the machine quilting. In this photo you can kind of see all the quilting designs...
but I think it shows up best on the back.
Here's the little vine.
I'm linking to Finished for Friday at Lit and Laundry and Sew and Tell at Amylouwho so be sure to stop over there and see all the wonderful finishes for this week (and remember at Lit and Laundry they're not all sewing projects!)

I have to apologize-I said I would put up the pattern for the Bonnet Girl quilt (done!) and a tutorial for outline embroidery (not done!) That was an Oops on my part-I didn't think ahead and realize I would need someone else to photograph the tutorial! Now that DD will be visiting, I will have her take the photos and the tutorial will be up very soon.

I love your quilt, I used to have a commercial embroidery business before my husband passed away. I stil have my machines, need to sell them. But I'm ready to set one of them up and get back to using them, I think this time it will be for hobby only. You did an awesome job on the quilt,Margaret
