Emma's Birthday Quilt

I am crazy about the art of  Cicely Mary Barker.  Famous for her lovely Flower Fairies.

Above is her illustration of a Rose Flower Fairie.

Emma's favorite color is Pink.

For her birthday I made her a little Quilt.  Large enough to cover her but small enough to carry around.  I took a fabric panel, stitched borders to it, had it professionally quilted and then folded the backing over to create the binding.

Then I hand embroidered a Label to stitch to the back.  I used two strands of floss and just embroidered over my own handwritting to make it personal.

Added the date and a Bullion Rose.

And a scripture.

She loved it.
And we both were happy!

That is a really lovely quilt. Surely it will become a family heirloom and be passed down to her nieces and daughters.
