Love for Nora Quilt

Anything pink, dark pink, violet-red pink, light pink, etc… has already received claim by my daughter.  She’s probably like most little girls, although I don’t particularly remember having such a taste for the color myself.

I decided to jump in and make this quilt about 10 days ago.  I had the Kissing Booth fat 8th bundle for over a year and really wanted to put it together fast.  I combined some ideas from the Temecula Quilt Co blog site that gave instructions for their wall hanging on Jan 29th, and the Layer Cake Lemonade pattern from Fat Quarter Shop.  Instead of a layer cake, I made 9″ squares from my fat 8th bundle.

Started with One Heart:

One Heart Done

Then Three Hearts…

Three Hearts

Then a Row of Hearts…

Row of Hearts

And finally – a finished quilt top!  I called it “I Heart Nora”

I Heart Nora Quilt

I plan to FMQ it myself, and at the same time, do some quick and easy heart applique shapes in a couple of corners.  I also have in my stash, a pink minky type fabric for the backing that I bought and never used that will be great.  Just trying to decide on a binding.

Sorry I have been away, if you are a follower!  My husband upgraded my blog to it’s own domain site and then it took a little while to reorganize the content.  I think we are very close now!  You can bookmark if you would like!  Please follow along if you enjoy seeing quilts, cats, and an occassional family post.

Work is hell right now, so as soon as this week is over – I will be able to get back to my projects.  Really looking forward to the next block in Reach for the Stars, and maybe another one in my General’s Wives BOM.

See you soon!!  Thanks for visiting!!
