Baby Quilt Finish & A Few Other Things

Our dear friends just became Grandparents for the first time.  Myra is from Scotland, so I wanted to give "Wee Fair Bairn Emma" a quilt of Scottish fairy tales.  It is finally finished!  I had everything done in time for Quilt Guild Tuesday night, except tacking down the binding, and I took it for show & tell.
I designed this quilt using fairytale illustrations from Pinterest as my inspiration.  The panels are all embroidered and then fabric painted.

The thistle in the center is applique.

This panel is the Silkie story, though I opted to go with an actual mermaid for the quilt.

This of course is a unicorn story.

The Water Horse

The wife who could not spin or weave....unfortunately in this shot the window looks askew, but it's actually the way the quilt is hanging.  It's straight, I promise. :-)

At Quilt Guild  Paulette attended with me, and here are the two quilts she quilted:

I also really liked these two from show & tell:

Four of us from church have made a quilt we will be raffling off to raise money to help out the Robinson family, whose small child has a devastating disorder called SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy).  We four pieced it, and Paulette attached the borders, and is now quilting it by hand....(more on this quilt when it is completely finished):
