Easy Quilted Blankets

Of course I only want quilts for my baby and of course don't have the time to piece a whole bunch for him....so I thought of an easy way to make a few quilts with a quilted look but a whole lot less work!

 I fell in love with this print from Malka Dubrawsky when it first came out and thought it would be a perfect top for one of my blankets.  I'm simply stitching around each circle a row at a time.  


This print is from "Bella" by Lotta Jansdotter.  I'm also just stitching on the lines and because the lines are slightly irregular, I'm not using my channel lock.....just my eye as I stitch.


...and to make it easier, I sewed 3 different flannel backs together before loading on the longarm.  I'll get 3 blankets quilted up at once.

....now don't get me wrong, I definitely plan on piecing some quilts for the baby...but of course!!

They are so cute!! I love your idea.
If you don't mind my asking, what kind of tension do you use for your top and bobbin on your long arm?? Your stitches are so pretty. Do you use the stitch regulator? I would love to have my stitches look as pretty. They don't look bad, just not as good and tight as yours. (I probably need more practice, I only quilt my own quilts)
I love all of your work. You are so talented!
