New Baby Quilt

With a new baby arriving any week now (or rather me going to bring him home), I've been anxious about getting as much of his baby quilt done as I can. It is my own design, but a pretty basic square in a square pattern. I continued the square theme by making the quilt itself square too. This is the finished top.

Now to try out my new walking foot to machine quilt it. Any ideas on what quilting pattern would compliment it?

Baby Shower Gift

This was my first time trying felt applique, and boy, it couldn't be easier - no edges to turn under, just top stitch it on. It's a quick way to personalize a baby shower gift like these bibs and burb cloth. I used my new walking foot to machine quilt the burb cloth.
These turned out so cute, I made a couple for my own baby! The bibs are made from the same pattern as my first post on bibs, but these are done in the infant size.
