On Monday I told you that I got Georgia’s Preschool Quilt longarmed.
I managed to get it bound.
AND…I got pictures taken of it!! WHOOT! WHOOT!! Here it is…It’s busy…very busy. But it’s so Georgia.
You might remember that Georgia picked out this panel when we were at the quilt shop in Elkader. Here she is…
I did a little searching and you can buy the panel HERE if anyone is interested.
I cut the panel pieces down to 6 1/2″ square and then alternated nine patches made with 2 1/2″ squares.
I used Lori Holt’s Spelling Bee book for the letters for her name. You can find that book HERE. It’s super easy to use and made the letters. I use that book often. Being this is a preschool quilt, I love that her name is on it.
The quilt ended up being 39″ X 48″. Not too big at all…
I’m just thrilled to have it done. I used some 2 1/2″ squares that a blog reader sent (THANKS SO MUCH!!) along with many of my own scraps.
Here is the backing.
This was a sheet I found at Goodwill. I just know Georgie is going to love it! Anything unicorns or horses is her thing.
I debated on binding. I probably should have used a pink binding with the hope of calming it all down…but instead, I went even wilder and added a striped print.
I made a pillow for her too. I used my tutorial on how to make a pillowcase from a shirt. You can find that HERE. (I know…why add even more business with a plaid too!!) If you knew Georgie, all the business totally suits her!!
Of course…there must be a Rosie picture. Here it is.
I’m so happy to have this done. She starts preschool next week so it was just in time.
Buck, our son, called me just as I was finishing it up. He asked what I was doing and I told him I just finished Georgie’s quilt. He said, “Good for you Mom. I know how task-oriented you are so that must feel good.” He knows me so well. I am task-oriented and it feels AWESOME!!
Now…onto Gannon’s quilt.
