Dots All Over baby quilt

I had a good time shopping yesterday. Found some fabrics, a pattern, and some pink and white polka dot minkie! It was even half price! I would say that it was meant to be the back of the baby quilt. I was wishing I had a circle panto of some sort, then realized that one of my new ones has curliques, so used it. (It is the 3rd pictured in post below.)
I was going to use flannel, but will just use on something else. I was a little worried about quilting it, but it went fine. I did use stabilizer on it first, so no stretching. Now to put on the binding (It is light pink with tiny white dots.)

My sister headed back to Canada this morning. About 16 of us went out to eat last night to say good-bye. We have had a lot of family gatherings in the past 2 weeks, so I feel like I got to visit with her & the rest of my family a lot. They are getting out just ahead of the nasty weather we are having here today. It is cold, dreary and rainy, which is now freezing. Wonder how they fared in Denver?

I love it, is it hard to quilt on the minkie and do you use batting??

I like those little circles. They are perfect for a baby quilt.

How nice! The quilting on the little quilt! It saves a lot of time to do it by machine and still looks gorgeous! My compliments to you!
