emma grace inspired by lulu's ladder

Remember this quilt top?  (Inspired by this quilt pattern.)  Well, it is finally a finished quilt!

Never mind the propane tank in the background

I quilted it using a cream thread 1/4" from each seam to give an outline effect.  The backing is a pink floral print, the same as the binding.  In hindsight, I wish I had chosen the larger floral print for the backing.  I think it would have added a lot to the quilt.

The quilt measures 64" x 72".  I am happy to have it finished.  I can already tell I am not going to be the type of person who has 10 WIP (work in progress) projects going at any given time.  It just stresses me out.  So having this one complete is like a weight off my shoulders. 

Thanks for reading


  1. It's beautiful, Valerie!! Love how you photographed it in the tree and grass.

  2. Thanks Mary. I tried. If only I knew someone who could take professional-style photos for me... ;) ;)
