Emmy's Favorite

Well, after what seems like (and has been) years and years, I finally finished this quilt -- "Emmy's Favorite" from the book Floral Quilts From Grandma's Cupboard. See Bliss' quilt here, which she finished a long, long time ago.  Several of us in our little quilt group decided to make this quilt as a group -- each person made six blocks of whatever section in the quilt they had.  (I did the block in the lower left-hand corner, with all the little flowers!)  After I got the blocks back from everyone (Bliss, Cathy, Maureen, and Pam), I put the blocks together and had my quilt top all done except for the outside border.  I couldn't decide whether to put a different fabric on each side or use one fabric for the border, so I put it away and didn't look at it for a long time.  As you can see, I finally pulled it out and decided to use one fabric for the outside border.  It was a happy day when I got it back from Cathy after she quilted it and I had the binding on -- it was done!
