Lillian's Quilt


I finally finished Lillian's quilt top. It turned out a lot larger than I wanted
57 x 56 so it isn't going to work as a quilt to hang behind her crib.
I even went back and made some of the letters smaller but just couldn't get them small enough. Maybe Tonya will have some suggestions in her new book.
I guess I will just have to make another quilt to hang on the wall.
I like the way the quilt turned out. The problem now is I can't figure out how it should be quilted.

Wonderful! your quilt is fantastic. sorry to hear that it's too big to fit in the intended spot, but it's a masterpiece none the less. If you're going to make another project and need smaller letters, email me and I'll do what I can to help.
