I remember someone telling me that her idea of a really great baby quilt is one that gets totally worn out. I will hope the same for this quilt.
Rickrack wiggle + almost echo quilting
Sparkling BIG rickrack + lots of fancy stitches
Rhinestone trim on rough fabric, stitching on satin and heavily textured uphostery fabric
One thing I would do differently is to make it smaller and use a poly filling as that would be lighter. I used many upholstery fabrics + some heavy trims. Also, I had to be very careful not to get any seams near each other because of the fabric thickness. I might put strips between the rows to make it a little easier to quilt and reduce the thick seams. Another thing I might not do again is add the trim with the rhinestones. Very easy to break needles on that trim. But it does give a lot of sparkle.
