nicey jane

ta da! here she is! I made nicey jane for the spare bed in miss keira’s room and it hasn’t disappointed! Just to recap, I used crazy mom quilts pattern, Nicey Jane fabric from here and loads of white homespun (because I ran out of quilters muslin but now have 2 bolts to myself to keep me going for a while).

ta da!

The machine quilting was done in 2 nights on my trusty Brother and the binding in 1 night…I am so in love with the binding fabric which was a recent find from the quilting section at Spotlight. I emptied the bolt and knew it would be perfect for binding

and it was…..I must just press those little corners into shape but I’m getting better.


I must admit that it is sooooo satisfying to make a single bed quilt and I will definitely be making another one this size as my next quilt project…..

all made up

and of course there is the all important verdict from Keira…..and…..she loves it! We have one happy customer…..

keira approves!

who quickly accessorised her dress with a scarf before I took the photo!


  1. Corrie it’s so gorgeous! No wonder you are pleased with it. The quilting looks great, and the binding was a perfect choice. And you have a very happy (and cute) customer. Well done!

  2. Simply beautiful Corrie! Fabulous work. Binding is perfect and it is big! How are your arms after you marathon sewing?! Mine are always sore after quilting such a large quilt, especially if I sit and quilt for ages. Once you start it’s hard to stop 😉 xox

  3. Lovely, just lovely! The binding is perfect, you did an awesome job! I’m assuming you made Keira’s dress as well, her scarf goes so nicely. :)

  4. Beautiful, I just love it.

  5. i love this!!!!! just stunning

  6. Beautiful quilt. She’s so cute. Love the crossed legs pose.

  7. Great job Corrie, it’s beautiful! You are so fast at getting your projects done… and with three children… please give me your secret… I can’t seem to sit down for 10 minutes to crochet with my three.

  8. Haha – cute scarf! The quilt is lovely!

  9. Fantastic work, no wonder you’re pleased!

  10. Wow, that looks fabulous, perfect choice for binding, the colours match so well.
    So, I’m wondering what delight is topping Keira’s bed?
    Kelly :-)

  11. Gorgeous GORGEOUS work Corrie, you never disappoint!! Love striped binding, it frames the quilt perfectly. I agree with Bianca, wrestling a larger quilt through the machine is a bit of a work out & you do want to knock if over in one hit!!
    Looking forward to your next huge project, simply inspirational. Love Posie

  12. Just gorgeous. Perfect spot for little girls cousins to sleep!!! Love the binding, Spotty is getting good in that department.

  13. All photos are gorgeous, esp cheeky kiera! What a great bed to lie on and read, or play.

  14. Oh what can I say Corrie, simply gorgeous!! One day I hope to be able to make something to resemble a quilt, but for the meantime I will keep admiring yours. Keira looks so cute with her little scarf added too, how fashionable is she!

  15. Just beautiful Corrie!!!! The binding is just perfect.

  16. I love it… all your work is lovely! I’m so in awe of all that you do, knowing you have 3 little ones. I have one with 2 on the way and I hope I am able to do as much as you, although I doubt it!!
