Rae's baby quilt

Rae is very experienced at using her embroidery machine.  This is just too cute, with the baby's name embroidered on a block, and the rickrack used as edging on an inner border.  Embroidery looks beautiful, but I find it hard to quilt.  Sometimes the embroidered sections are large, and it's hard to figure out how to quilt them and not leave places too puffy.  On this one, I stitched in the ditch of the blocks and then quilted diagonally, vertically and horizontally through all the blocks, but stopped at the edge of the embroidered designs. The outer border has little curlicues for the quilting.
