Erin's Quilt... finally!

Friday, June 18, 2010
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...

    1. Hi Ann,

      It was many years ago I do not remember where I got it. I am sure that it isn't available anymore. I am sorry about that.
