Sarah's Story Book - Girl's Quilt

Good Afternoon family and friends,
Just finished quilting this little girl's quilt. It measures 28 x 46". I made it from a piece of sweet fabric I got at the quilt fair in January.
It's called Sarah's Story Book by Beverlie Manson for Blue Hill Fabrics Pattern #7499. Cute little girl fabric. It sounds like a book panel. But it's actually higher quality fabric than most of those book panels and was intended to be a book.  100% cotton and I used Fairfield 80/20 batting and an all cotton backing of pink with tiny hearts. I added a little green and a pink (also hearts) border to it. I enjoyed quilting this one very much. Added some new techniques for me. Pebbles and cross hatching in the middle with fans in the corner's of the squares and pink flowers in the border.  I quilted this quilt completely with my micro handles free hand and used my small longarm ruler for the straight lines. I love quilting when I don't have to mark it.
This quilt reminded me of my niece named Sarah Beach. She's getting married soon so may-be this can be a baby quilt for her some time in the future.
Thanks for visiting and take a moment to view the pictures at the bottom of my blog from my etsy store. I added about 10 vintage items to the store today.
