Emilee's Baby Quilt

 I am linking this post up over at Lee's and Freshly Pieced for her anniversary edition of WIP Wednesday!!  This quilt top has sat as a UFO long enough!  My grandbaby needs a warm quilt this winter so it's hi-ho, off to the studio I go!!

Get on over and link up with one of your WIP's! Lee will be glad you came!

Yesterday I had to break from the quilting frame for a day so I went upstairs to get off my feet.  I showed you these fabrics in an earlier post and gave a link to a pattern that I had purchased from Carol! Well, the pattern came Monday so I dove in yesterday and got this quilt top ready to quilt for my granddaughter Emilee.  Carol's quilt shows 8 colors but the size is a little too big for a baby quilt, so I went with 7 colors for Emilee's.  The look is still the same, just altered slightly.  And I love the polka dot fabrics!

As her pattern suggests, I used the left over fabrics to make a fancy back to match the quilt top!

I am not sure at this point how I will quilt it.  It will get done between now and the end of November when we go home for a visit.  Emilee won't need it until then anyway. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them!

Really cool baby quilt, Thearica! I've no ideas for the quilting, but I'm sure you'll come up with something good once you start it. Have fun!

So cute! One time I saw a repeating rainbow pattern which was pretty cool. It would go with the rainbow-color theme of your quilt.

I love that quilt! I would probably do some straight line quilting, every few inches or so apart.

Very cute polka dot quilt--I'm fond of them too, and I love the sort-of-exclamation-point the design makes on the front of the quilt. Clever.

I'm also stopping by all of Lee's original posters to say thanks for helping her get her WIP Wednesday off the ground. I've really enjoyed it, and doesn't it make us want to have something in progress to post? Yep.

Thanks!

What a great quilt. How about my go to method of quilting - just an allover meandering design. Or maybe loops.

Oh, what a beautiful quilt! I love the colors and the design is stunning.

And btw, my mom's name is Emalee! You don't see it spelled that way (or even close, like Emilee) too often.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on WIPs in this week's post, and thanks for linking up! : )
