Emerald Quilt Challenge

I did it! I actually got one done IN TIME! It's kind of a miracle considering all the illness we've add over the past month - nothing serious but lingering and then back for a second round and boy am I ready for everyone to get healthy. And stay healthy. So my little sicky kept taking these impromptu three hour long naps on the couch in the sewing room. Great to see her resting, not so great for my productivity. But such is the life of a mom.

This is actually the second start to my EQC quilt after I realized the awesome EPP one I'm working on might be done, oh around Christmas :-) So I used Megan's awesome pattern from the Fresh Mini Quilt Club - if you haven't joined you might want to because I think they are all going to be great patterns! I used Joel Dewberry's Notting Hill for the center and binding, a couple of Kona solids and a shot cotton (the chartreuse). I could not be happier with how it turned out! I think these colors were really tricky to get accurate but this top photo is the best on colors.
But this one really shows the quilting, so I used them both. There you go. Thanks to Ali for organizing and hosting this fun little contest, as well as all her fantastic sponsors! The entries look pretty impressive and I'm happy to be among them :-)

Emerald Quilt Challenge : entered in the Mini category, quilt finished at 18" square from Fresh Mini Quilt Club's March Mini pattern.

Happy St. Patrick's Day and here's to a healthy week for us all!
