Erin's Quilt... finally!

Sorry I have been gone so long. I was on the big push to get Erin's quilt finished. I had the top done forever but was trying to get the backing fabric and batting sorted. I started it in September and finished the binding last night.


I worked on this in the mornings before she got up for school. I was trying to get it done for her Birthday... oh well 5 months late isn't too bad ;P


It came out even better than I had hoped and she loves it. Have I mentioned how picky she is? Now she can finally get rid of her purple butterfly quilt she has had since she was 5. Oh joy for a 12 (nearly 13) yr old.



I used the fabric above, "Sound Waves", as the inpiration for the quilting. I did random wavy lines all the way across the quilt. It only took me about 4 hrs to quilt it.

I haven't forgotten that I promised a give away (and I am a week late) but it will have to wait a little longer. I promise it is coming though so hang in there.

Talk soon...

This is such a wonderful finish!! Absolutely love it! I am sure Erin is just tickled! Great job on the quilting too. I often like to use fabric in the quilt for inspiration for the quilting design.

Welcome back to quilting! I love this one-- is it a bento box? I want to make one with black and white with some pops of red, but these colors are so wonderful I might have to rethink it.
