Quilting of Patriotic Baby Quilt Started

I have had this top pieced for years. It was made from leftovers from one of Bonnie Hunter's pineapple blossom quilts. I wanted to try the tilted look with blocks, so I used red on the mainly blue blocks and blue on the mainly red ones. I will show the whole quilt after it is finished. I am trying to finish up quilt tops I have more than piece new ones. Yea--we'll see how that goes.

Here is a blue surrounded with red. I am quilting with stars and loops because of the patriotic colors.

Here is a red with blue surround...

And a larger section of the quilt just to show the design. That is my sewing machine in the right bottom corner. Off for more laundry and hopefully more sewing...after lunch is prepared.
