    My twins just turned 3 in January and we moved them out of their cribs and into "Big Kid" beds a few weeks later. I decided that they needed to each have a new quilt to celebrate the transition - and even though they still share a room, I wanted the quilts to reflect a little of their individual likes and personalities. (I'm so sick of green/brown gender-neutral bedding!) So, I used the same pattern for both but one is done in a blue shark theme and the other in a pink fairy ballerina theme. I backed them in minky fleece to make them extra soft and snuggly. They also each got a matching pillowcase. I just finished and washed my daughter's this afternoon - so here they are! Thanks for looking!

    Good thinking. Nice quilts. With 2 toddlers, it's hard to imagine having any time to quilt.

    Oh I love them, especially the shark one. Great way to showcase the fabric. Isn't it great when they start really developing likes and dislikes, so that your projects aren't just "baby quilts" but "John's quilt" or "Jane's quilt"?

    Love the pillowcases! Are they your own pattern? How do you make them?

    What are dimensions of these quilts? Need to make a gift for a 2 yr old that has a little bed like those.

    These little toddler beds take a crib mattress, so any crib-sized quilt should work. These are approx 40 x 52"

    LOL! What would you say if I told you I also have an 18-month old?!? They're all in bed by 8, so I sew at night. I can do handwork around them too - IF I'm really careful with keeping my tools out of reach, and they're otherwise distracted by a game or coloring - they're pretty used to seeing mommy working on something pretty much all the time!

    Thanks everyone for all the nice comments! They love their new quilts - especially my daughter. She is crazy for her fairy ballerinas.
