Deanna's Big Boy/Girl Quilts

A good friend of mine, Deanna, makes a quilt for each of her grandchildren when they turn 4. These quilts are the big boy/girl quilts made to fit the big beds.  The latest quilt is for Sadie. The batik hearts are bright and cheerful.  I quilted the quilt with overall paisley hearts using King Tut #921.
Sadie's name was pieced using Tonya Ricucci's method of free form piecing.  Check out Tonya's Word Play Quilts book available at Katja's.

Cleo will be the lucky recipient of this batik star quilt.  In both quilts Deanna replaced a block with the child's name.  Great idea!

Mylah is already using this beauty.

Soren wanted farmyard fabrics on his quilt, so Deanna created this fun quilt.

Olin was into construction equipment, so this is the quilt he received.

Hunter's quilt was made before Deanna knew how to quilt the name.  I'm sure he loves it just the same.

Thanks to Deanna for agreeing to let me show you these great quilts.


  1. wow, Deanna, wonderful job! love how you did those letters especially in Cleo and Sadie - wonderful piecing. congrats on the happy quilts!
