I am working on a little surprise

lili's quilt

This is a quilt that I am making for my daughter - I was hoping to finish the top while at the cabin with my Mom, but I underestimated how long it would take. Man, that sounds like me. I pulled the project out again and got the sashing done last night. It was my date with Bliss and Ruby - have I told you that I love Camille's fabric? Well - I do and her new line is to die for! I can't wait for it to come out!

I have been wanting to make a quilt for my daughters bed for a long time, we recently got her her big girl bed - it's going to last until she's all grown up and moves out - I think I just might cry at that thought. Anyway - I asked her what her favorite colors are and she said "red, pink, and turquoise." That made it simple enough to chose the fabric. Also, I used a lot of white in this quilt - that's on purpose because I want to give this quilt some amazing quilting treatments.

Her room needs to be painted and I have pillow shams, decorative pillows, a valance and bed skirt to finish up. This is going to be one of those drawn out long projects because I have to put the quilt aside and wait until all the other projects are made. If I end up quilting the quilt first, I won't make everything else. I know that about myself - plus, I have a lot of quilting to do. So, I will keep you up to date on my progress of this fun project. My daughter saw it and said she loved it - she asked who it was for and I told her someone very special. I think she will be so happy!
