Fairies for Em

During my convalescence I have been catching up on some sewing as it is the one thing I can do.  Stitching quilt binds has taken a bit of time. I can t believe I have 2 quilts all done just waiting for the binding to be stitched.
Well this one is finished. My daughter in law said that she had one just the same that her grandmother made her when she was a girl. When the floods went through her town she lost many of her treasured memories including her quilt. So of course she had her eye on this one. She loved it. I bought it about 6 years ago on a trip to North Queensland thinking it would be lovely for my granddaughter when she turned 5 or 6.  The material is not as old as my DIL so I think it must be a reproduction. I machine quilted it myself , I'm not too good at it but I am learning so this will have to do.

Just did some basic stippling 

Tried a couple of daisies but the centre isn't too good so will cover it with something .

The gift of the quilt will be loved because YOU made it.
I wouldn't worry about the quilting...we all had to start FMQ at some point... & yours is FiNe. I don't think there's a need to sprinkle fairy dust on the centre either...xox

Jenny, you know better than to point out what YOU think are issues! No one sees them but you and Emma will love this.
