Learning curve

This was my first go at totally free-motion quilting. What fun! I don't know how well the details show up, but it was a wild adventure. Each block was around 5x5. Within each block I quilted a pattern that reminded me of the print within the white. 
This was for Kimball. He was born Feb of 2010. His room has brown and shades of blue polk-a-dots. One pronounced color in his room is teal. I tried to put enough of it in his blanket to compliment his room without screaming matchy-matchy. 
You can't tell, but I have four patterns and solids making up the white. The white was randomly pieced. It resulted in excessive sewing, ironing, measuring, resewing, ironing, trimming, etc. 
It was too much fun.
