Emerson's quilt

I had to share some pictures of the qulit I made my friend's little girl. This was the first quilt I made trying to be creative with my machine quilting. The meandering stitch was the best I could do.
I would love to get my quilts professionally quilted, but I haven't been able to locate anyone affordable in this area. I called one lady who quoted me $150!!! for this little quilt!! That's when I got on line and watched a bunch of tutorials on how to do it myself without a fancy machine.

So there's me tooting my own horn.

toot toot!

p.s.I got the design idea from one of my favorite sites, Handmade by Alissa. I love her use of a wide variety of fabric all in one quilt.

Gorgeous quilt!! You inspire me! Have you ever made or tried a Hawaiian quilt? My dream is to do one. You have the talent, you could do it.

Your quilts are beautiful. I'm trying to get the courage to cut into a honeybun that my mom gave me to make a quilt. I found your blog thru V and Co's blog. I don't know if you remember me, but I was in SLO 3rd ward starting in '98. My maiden name is Bravard.
