I've had this stack of fabrics waiting to turn into quilts for my girls. Most of the fabrics are by Prints Charming, Rainbow Garden collection, with quite a bit of Lizzy House thrown in and a bunch of others. The Prints Charming prints are on a so soft poplin base cloth, it's just too dreamy. I also used a few shot cottons for the patchwork as well as the binding. Just some straight line quilting and we're all set.
Emily had been asking me for a quilt for months, I think way before I started the swoon quilt for my mom. I had only made Emily one quilt before and it was a baby size quilt. Since the girls share their room, I think they'll eventually need bunk beds (right now we've got one twin size bed and a toddler bed). So even though this is a twin size quilt, she'll just snuggle under it every night until we make the upgrade!
Since I planned to make coordinating quilts for the girls, I knew I had to personalize it somehow. Improv pieced 'Emily' on the backing was the perfect choice. She'll always know it's hers. Plus I've been saving this text ikea print for a long time, it worked out perfect for the backing.
finished size: 70" by 90"
