Emma Quilt Top

**Update: This quilt has now been finished!  Check it out at this post.**

Here's a quilt top for a baby quilt I've been working on.  I gave a sneak peak of the beginning of this quilt in this post.  It's another pattern from the adorable book 3 Times the Charm!  (I promise I'm not biased because of it's name.) This quilt is for a little boy so I didn't want anything to feminine and I thought this pattern fit the bill.

Some of the prints are from the Farm Yard Friends line that I ADORE!  I found some at at Craft Town Fabrics and ordered some of the prints my local shop didn't have.  I figure it's always good to have boy friendly prints on hand, right?  I wish I could find more of the green nursery rhyme print, and the grey "Crawl, Slow, Slide" print, but so far I haven't had any luck.

This top has been done for a few weeks, but I didn't have any batting to finish it.  But thanks to my hubby I was able to have a day this weekend to run errands without our little one.  It's amazing how much more I can accomplish and in less time when I'm not carting her around!

I was able to get it basted today, and even started to quilt it.  I was probably about 1/6th of the way done with the quilting when I realized something was wrong with my tension - ARGH!  Over half of what I did needs to be unpicked.  I didn't have the heart to do it right then, and my little one needed some attention so it's left to be fixed and finished another day!
