Shelby's Bowtie Quilt
I finished this Bowtie quilt that I started a long time ago for my bed. Recently my niece was here and really was loving this quilt and wanted one for her bed. I thought I would be the nice aunt and give it to her so that she can treasure it always.
This quilt is 104" x 115" and I have no idea how to take a picture of it hanging up since it is so heavy and large so all you get is it on my bed. It isn't even staying on my bed I just used my pillows to see what it looks like. Hopefully I will get my niece to take a picture of it in her room soon so we all can see.
I sent it to Emily at Emerson Quilting to get it long armed with the figure 8 quilting which is amazing and looks so perfect on this quilt. The quilting really stands out on the white. She has some close up picture of the quilt on her blog to if you want to go and check them out.
My niece loved the trees from Erin McMorris line Weekends and we found them from an amazing price and was able to get 10 yards for the back of the quilt so she can flip the quilt over and just have the trees. I also made a scrappy yellow binding to help the little yellow in the quilt pop.
Here was just the top when I finished it. You can see the whole quilt here.
Next up will be all the clothes that I have been sewing for the girls!
