This past week I was sent a pack of Tonga Treats from Timeless Treasures to play with. These precut packs of batik fabrics are awesome treats for beginning quilters because each pack comes with a super easy quilt pattern. Just grab a treat and you're ready to create a new quilt!
I started with a Tonga Treat Mini Petals which should be easy to find in your local quilt shop in a few weeks (February 2016). It includes a super easy quilt pattern that will create a beautiful patchwork baby quilt.
But there's just one problem. The instructions just say "quilt as desired" so how are we going to quilt it?
Learn how I decided to quilt this pretty little baby quilt in this new video:
I decided to cover the quilt with a very easy design called Sharp Stippling and to machine quilt it All Over Style. This large scale style of quilting is a great choice for quilts you wish to finish quickly.
Another reason this was a great choice for quilting design is because of the fabric colors and patterns. This collection of batiks are strongly patterned so a more complex quilting design just isn't going to show up!
Machine quilting in this All Over Style is a great way to practice a single quilting design. You may not know the design very well to start, but by the time you finish quilting even a small quilt like this, you'll definitely have the hang of the design.
