A Quilt for Nora

Nora, my almost 3 year old has been sleeping in a twin bed since she was about 16 or 17 months. I had every intention to make a twin quilt for her bed pretty quickly. Well we know how life goes, I started on other projects mainly operation handmade Christmas, all the while pregnant with #2. So I never got around to making her own quilt until about a month ago. I finally decided it was time.

I was able to pull all of the fabric from my stash (yeah for stash busting!) including the flannel backing. I chose a nice mix of novelty prints along with some of my favorite prints as well.

To say Nora was excited about her own quilt is a bit of an understatement. This girl loves quilts and usually is under one in our family room playing or watching a movie (silly girl). She loves pointing out her favorite fabric, it just makes my heart sing. Plus I love tucking her in at naptime and bedtime under a quilt of her very own. Now if I can just finish my a bed quilt for my husband and I, we will all have bed quilts of our own.

  1. Beautiful quilt! Love that Nora was so excited to have her own quilt AND that she loves fabric :)

    1. Thank you, she does love fabric and helping mom.

  2. Isn't that the way - a quilter is usually the last to get a quilt for herself. For years we had a single bed quilt on our double bed, before I got around to stitching a much larger one for myself.
    It's wonderful that your little girl now has her very own quilt on her big bed!
