long lost baby quilt


I think this is a first, I was looking back through my pictures on Flickr, and I found I quilt I hadn't shared here on the blog!  No, it wasn't a super secret project or anything fun like that, according to the date stamp on the pictures I finished this quilt and photographed it a mere 3 days before giving birth to Nora!  Apparently this quilt got lost in the early newborn hazy days, but it certainly isn't because this quilt is tucked away not being used, its a favorite in our house and can often be found spread out in the middle of the living room floor covered in rattles, stuffed animals and toys that talk and sing.  And when Nora isn't using it to roll around on, the dogs find it a nice place to take a nap :-)


This quilt came to be when at the 11th hour I realized that of all the quilts I made for Nora, I didn't have one that actually matched the nursery!  So of course that situation needed remedied.  I dug through my stash and pulled out my favorite yellow and grey fabrics, and threw in a few pops of hot pink just for some added color.  I used a precious charm square I'd been hoarding of  the yellow puppy dogs print by Heather Ross and also a charm square of Heather Ross Mendocino mermaids.  I love this quilt anyways, but those two little additions made it pretty much perfect in my book.


I remember my husband looking at me a little crazily when I told him Nora needed one more quilt, he thought 3 quilts was plenty.  I disagreed and told him there was no such thing as too many quilts, and I have to say I was right!  In addition to the plethora of quilts we have strewn about the house, Nora has 4 that are her very own, and they are all in regular rotation, getting ample amounts of baby love.


I used my ultimate favorite quilt back, the numbers Ikea print (which I heard is being discontinued...whaaaaat??).  So I'm trying  to find time to squeeze in an Ikea trip soon to buy yards and yards and yards of this print to have on hand for many baby quilts to come.


These pictures have me crazy excited for spring and the good weather that is to come!  The past few days have been beautiful and we've gotten outside for a few walks around the neighborhood, Nora squints at the sun like she doesn't know what it is (and in her defense, she really hasn't seen much of it!)  Can't wait for warm summer days and dragging those quilts outside for play time, come on sunshine!

And just because its been a while since I've shared a Nora pic, I'll leave you with this one:


Check out those baby blues, this girl was made to wear aqua!


  1. Gorgeous quilt (and model, of course!)

  2. She's such a little curie :) and of course you cannot have too many quilts. We have a big basket in the living room filled with quilts and my boys (and even their friends) just grab one from the top of the pile when and where ever.

  3. Love this quilt and Nora is a cutie.

  4. She is adorable! And the quilt is lovely too. :-)

  5. Well, I have to say that Nora outshines the quilt by a mile. Babies are wonderful!

  6. I love this quilt!! The colors are awesome. And baby Nora is a doll!!

  7. What a fun quilt! It's really pretty, and Nora is adorable :)

  8. Love the quilt, and your baby girl is so adorable! Congratulations!!

  9. Gorgeous quilt, love the colours and adorable model Nora!
