Counting by Fives

My sister is graduating this summer - the perfect excuse to make her a little quilt for her apartment. I turned to the Moda Bake Shop for some pattern suggestions and as usual it did not disappoint.

The pattern is Counting by Fives and the fabric is Punctuation! by American Jane for Moda. I added an additional border to quilt to bring out the red. This was also my first attempt at machine free quilting. I found it hard to keep moving in circles while moving the weight of the quilt through the machine. I watched several You-Tube videos on how to do the free quilting and I think it just takes practice. The end result turned out fine - the fabric puckered perfectly after being washed.
