Lillian + Oliver: Finished!!

I finished Lillian + Oliver today!  I am so excited that this little quilt is done and that is looks so sweet!

I know my bestie will just love this little quilt.  And her little boy will too, once he's born!!

Well, here it is!

I seriously love the way the greens, blues, and yellows play so nicely together!

Even though I don't really like using white for baby quilts, I think that it tones down the bright colors and kind of reigns everything in.  I don't think there was a better choice.

This new Summer House print for the back was just perfect, too!  I think if it had been at the quilt shop at the time I bought the fabrics for the front, it would have been featured on the quilt top.  But it's perfect for the back, too!

I quilted it with little loops using a yellow-green thread.  It was the perfect choice and I love how it fits right in with the rest of the quilt.

I feel like the binding was a great choice, too.  I think it would have been more overwhelming if I had used a different busy print, but since this one is the sashing, it doesn't look so busy to me.

Well, there we go!  Another finish for 2013! Woo! We're going strong!

What's your finish for the week?

  6. What a great baby quilt - good choices all around, from the white to the binding to the sashing to the quilting.

    One question - what pattern did you use? I really like this one. I have some fabric I'd like to try it out on.
