Lulu quilt, finished!

Do you ever see those giveaways on Instagram?
I have fun with them, usually you only have to become a follower and leave a comment.
Last summer, I won this pattern, designed by Amber Johnson.
Her company's name is Gigi's Thimble, 
her Instagram name is gigis_thimble.

Not only did I win the pattern, but I also won the machine quilting for the quilt I made with Amber's pattern!!!
It takes a jelly roll to make the Lulu pattern, that's all.
I only had a couple of jelly rolls, but I chose Sew Cherry, maybe my all time favorite fabric line.
It's Lori Holt's original fabric line.
I am still hoarding this fabric, so it was a little difficult to break into!

The quilt came together really fast, with a lot of chain stitching.

Here's my quilt, all machine quilted!
I just love it.
Stephanie Romney did the quilting, 
her instagram name is stuphfromsteph.
I highly recommend her, she did a fabulous job :)

I back the quilt with a soft minky.
I thought about giving it to my newest daughter in law for Christmas, but just couldn't part with it.
This quilt means a lot to me since it's Sew Cherry, Stephanie quilted it for me, and the back is minky.
It's my first minky quilt to keep for myself :)

I usually bind my quilts with a bright red, but didn't have any 
Sew Cherry.
I chose this gorgeous aqua with red cherries for my binding.

I could just stare at these beautiful fabrics all day!

Isn't it pretty with the beautiful aqua binding?

More Sew Cherry love!

I love the aqua against the pretty pinks.

I hope you've enjoyed looking at all the photos of my pretty lap quilt, it's so nice to be able to share with my quilty friends.
