Once Upon A Time


This is a custom order that I just finished for a new little princess who is about to arrive in California. Her "fairy godmother" wanted to give her a special quilt, because she received one as a baby, and has it to this day.  She asked for something soft, so I backed it in flannel which will get so soft when it is washed. I love the floral binding!


Dragons are meaningful to this little one's parents, so I used "Once Upon A Time" and had fun with the cute prints.  The repeat is really large, so I made on big patch in the center featuring the dragon, and surrounded it with smaller blocks.


Wishing the new little princess a charmed life!
