Meg Finished a Quilt!

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!!!
