I finished Lola's Quilt!! Yay!
And sweet little Lola's Quilt ended up being for our brand new niece, AnnaBelle. Couldn't be happier!!
I made this quilt in the spring, I didn't know anyone (at the time) having a baby girl. I loved the fabrics...all the Lagoon color stories from Michael Miller. And I was given the chance to do a tutorial using an Accuquilt.
Finished quilt size 30.5" x 40.5"
Perfect for new little babies!
I played around with the quilting on this one. Since it didn't have a home, yet, I tried a decorative stitch. It turned out sweet and I learned a lot.
The flowers were a fun feminine touch. Although there are flower prints in the rest of the fabrics, I really felt like I needed to add more femininity. Plus I LOVE putting applique over simple quilt patterns.
Polka dot backing.
I was happy to find this binding, I auditioned a lot!! But this was sweet, finished it nicely without standing out. Plus aqua is just a fab color, don't you think?
It feels great to post a finish! I had this quilt top sitting around for a while. Next week I'll share the other quilt I made just for baby AnnaBelle :)
Happy Birthday to my baby boy! He's 3 today!!!
