Primrose Quilt Finish

I finally finished my little girl's Primrose quilt. It has been on the list for nearly two years now. It just kept getting bumped for other projects - but no more! My little girl (age 2.5) is so excited to have a big quilt of her very own on her bed now. This project is #13 on my Q1FAL list.

Here it is! This is the Primrose quilt pattern from the book Fat Quarter Style. I made the twin-size version using Miss Kate fabric and a Kona dark blue background.

I had a lot of fun quilting this one using three different Aurifil 50wt threads. They blend so well that it's difficult to see them. I did a blue on the background, pink for the flowers, and green for the centers. These all came from my Simplify Aurifil box set.

I always put tags on my quilts and I just love the look of this one on the back. Ruby is just starting to learn her letters and recognize her name so this part is so fun for her.

I put it on her bed and she was so happy looking around and pointing to all the pretty prints. Here she's touching her two favorite blocks. These were also her two favorites when they were just in fat quarter form.

My happy girl on a quilt just for her. I cannot wait for Little Ruby to come out so I can make her another quilt. She has a baby quilt in the original Ruby and it would be so fun for her to have another with fabric that matches her name.

That's me for the week. Thanks for stopping by! I'm having fun picking what to do next since all my current fabric wips are done and I'm caught up on my bee blocks. Come back next week to see my finished cable-knit hat and to check out what I come up with. Until then I'm linking up over at Finish It Up Friday.
