Lillian + Oliver: Quilt Top!

I am so excited to have finished this quilt top already!  Once I had the fabric, it took me like a week to start it, but once I did, it came together really fast!

Well, here's the quilt top!

Doesn't snow make a pretty back drop?

Because the weather forecast for today was going to be snowy and icy, I supported my LQS yesterday and I bought the backing and binding for this quilt!

Lillian & Oliver Quilt Top, Backing, and Binding

The backing is Summer House by Heather Mulder Peterson and this arrived at the shop sometime after I purchased the fabrics for the quilt top, because if it had been there, it would have made it to the top instead of the back!  I think it's just perfect for the back, though.  The colors are perfect!

For the binding I decided to get more of Joel Dewberry's Notting Hill that I used for the sashing.  I think it will tie it all in together.  I am excited to baste and quilt this baby!  What's the likelihood that I can have it done by February?

  1. The print you used for the sashing really makes this quilt awesome!

  2. I really like it! Where did you get the pattern?

    1. Thanks!

      I bought it at a LQS, but you could purchase it here:

  3. This is an amazingly great pattern and choice of fabrics. It will be one of my favorite things. Great job

  4. I agree about the sashing! It doesn't always have to be mostly solid :)
