Greenhouse Quilt Finish

I did it! Goal achieved! Huge thanks to Lisa and Diane for keeping me motivated to finish my Greenhouse quilt and any other phantom quilt alongers out there.

Greenhouse Quilt
Greenhouse Quilt designed by Elizabeth Hartman. Pieced and quilted by Anita LaHay of Daydreams of Quilts.

I finished my quilt on Saturday and when we took it out for photos after supper it was very windy. There are actually five people behind the quilt holding it against the wind – my husband, son and three neighbourhood kids who were playing nearby.

I loved the backing so much that I wrapped it around to the front for binding. As you can see I quilted circular flower heads and leaves on vertical lines on the quilt. The Ombré Spectrum wideback is available in our shop.

Prize Winner: The only other person, besides me, to post an assembled quilt top in the #greenhouseqal hashtag was Lisa Taylor so she wins $50 to spend in my shop by default. Congratulations Lisa!

I am thrilled to have my quilt finished and on my bed in time to enjoy for the remainder of the summer and beyond! Thanks for coming by to see my quilt today!


  1. It turned out beautifully. Love the backing. I had a laugh when I read and three neighbourhood kids who were playing near by. 😂😂😂. The things we Quilters do to get a good quilt picture.

  2. Congrats on a beautiful finish! I love the theme and especially the rainbow of color! Thank goodness you had five people on hand to help!

  3. It’s beautiful. I was inspired by your post and by Lisa’s participation to at least get to the fabric buying stage with this quilt. I will be making a smaller size and to my daughter’s specifications. I would have liked to have sewn along but other projects were priority.

    1. Thank you Lisa! So glad I could inspire you! I certainly understand having other priorities so no worries there. 🙂
