Kenzie’s Big Girl Quilt

The pattern for this quilt came from Atlanta’s Intown Quilters. “Twinkle” is by Cheryl Wittmayer for Sew Be It. I chose this when my kids moved to Phoenix and my older granddaughter, Kenzie, who was 4 at the time, was being promoted to a twin size bed.



She was so excited! Kenzie said she wanted blue but she kept reaching for red fabrics. I thought this was a nice compromise, plus plenty of flexibility for the future. Each block is different because Kenzie said, “All the stars are different, Grammy!” Not, perhaps, for beginners and a little fiddly to piece, my heart still feels good when I see her dragging it around the house for movie time in the basement or a sleepover down the hall with her sister.

The backing and binding are from a good quality, pre-washed flannel sheet. Fuzzy to rub with sleepy fingers!
