Tulip quilt done

The dotted flower tulip quilt is finally done.
Yesterday I felt like quilting something from my stash, so I picked this one!
The blocks are from Pine Tree Quilt Guild, I won the blocks last spring, they are all using dotted fabrics.
 
 
of course I added dotted borders and binding too!
I just quilted some meandering in light green.

 
Not the whole back is dotted, I used a green fabric- sort of grass?!
then some dotted FQs

 
BTW this is my "new" design wall, since we changed the bonus room around the other day, the kids now have a couch and TV where they used to have their desks and my design wall's wall, now has the TV. This new wall is right outside my studio, we took off the old batting- it was sagging and full of lint and stapled some new batting to it.

 
I also got the rattles quilt back from McCall's last week, but didn't hang it up until now, doesn't really match Sonja's room, but it's still cute in there :-)

 
speaking of cute!! :-)
she was having some tummy time on the tulip quilt since I worked on the binding in the car on the way to church today.

 
here's some fun pics I've seen online lately
