Emily's Quilt Top

I finished sewing up Emily's quilt top this week. I used this pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew.  I thought I was never going to finish up those 9 patch squares but I did:)  I used the modern meadow line by Joel Dewberry.  Still love that one!  I think Emily will be excited when it's finally finished because whenever I'm sewing it, she always asks if it's done yet...almost there Emily!

I asked her which fabric she wanted for the backing and binding.  So happy she picked exactly what I was thinking...great minds think alike:)

June Goal

My current WIP is Emily's quilt.  Last month I finished making up all of the squares and laid it all out to how I want it.  So this month's goal is to sew up Emily's quilt top.

Also, I am making a baby quilt for my sister-in-law who is due with baby #4 at the end of the month.  My goal is to make the quilt top.  I was able to go to the quilt store, by myself, this morning thanks to my sweet cousin, Paula!!  It was quite a treat!  My sister-in-law sent me some pictures of the baby's crib bumper.  The colors are red, yellow, green, and blue so here's what I picked up to make the quilt:

The dark blue Glimma print is going to be used for the backing and then the light blue Lucy's Crab Shack print will be used for the binding.  I think I'm going to try out this hourglass tutorial by Cluck Cluck Sew.  I'm linking up here today:
