Little Bit's Quilt

I finally finished Little Bit's quilt for her twin bed. She'd long out grown her baby quilts, and for a long while liked multiple small quilts/blankets to one larger one. She's finally out grown that and was getting jealous of all the baby quilts I've made recently so I decided it was time for her to have her own.
 We picked out the fabrics online, ok I showed her some and she choose Eden. I used the large version of my Whimsy Square pattern and here it is!


 
I tried to catch her face when she saw her quilt...it's not great but you can see she is surprised!

I think I have to make her curtains to go with this. I did make two pillowcases out of the pink that my MIL had bought to go for the backing when she was here, but I ended up using Cuddilicous instead. I should have about 4 yards left, which I would think would make a curtain to go over those ugly vertical blind the apartment came with.
They've never bothered me until I was looking at this picture. So yup new curtains for Little Bit will be in the works.

Fantastic! I love the look on her face. Some curtains sound like a good addition. But it already looks great - very feminine.

The quilt looks great and Little bit looks really surprised, she'll treasure it that's for sure.

Great work! I love that quilt - how exciting for her! I hope my daughter's quilt (1+ years in the making :( ) is as well received!

Cara,
What a lovely quilt for your daughter- it is so girlish with all the pretty pinks and purples in it.
You are one productive lady these days.
Regards,
Anna
