Cutie Quilt: Share and Share Alike

I have been playing with my walking foot on my home machine lately so I pulled out some In Bloom fabrics from Sandra Clemons (affiliate link*) and pieced a Share and Share Alike Cutie Quilt just so I could quilt it.  That's perfectly normal, right?  Lie to me.

The orange butterflies on the pink fabric are insanely adorable and I need 18 bolts of this fabric!

The pattern calls for fat eighths and border fabric, but I had fat quarters and yardage.  I cut the blocks as instructed and pieced binding from the rest of the fat quarter pack.

I've always been intrigued by quilting spirals.  Fortunately, the fabulous Pat Sloan taught me how to quilt a spiral with my walking foot in her Teach Me to Machine Quilt book! (affiliate link*)

I threaded Hedwig, my HQ Stitch 710 machine, with my FabuLux Hint of Lime Thread

and started quilting my spiral.  This thread color is my favorite neutral.  Isn't lime green everyone's neutral?

This quilt was given to a baby born during the hurricane.  OK, 3 days after the hurricane but my story is better.
