Anne of Green Gables

 A young lady very dear to me is turning two! I marked the occasion with a big girl quilt.

Anne of Green Gables (72" x 72")


 I made this from a fat quarter bundle, a panel, and a few additions from stash. The panel had a double friendship star motif, so I replicated it in the quilt. (Kindred Spirits fabric line by Riley Blake)

I used some of the larger elements from the panel in a few of the centers. In others, I fussy cut quotes from the books from the fabrics and used those.

The center square of the quilt was cut from the panel.

I backed it with a pink brushstrokes print and bound it in aqua.

I also made an Anne doll to go with the quilt, and I included three different editions of the book with the gift.

 I think the gift was a hit!

Happy Birthday, sweet girl!

Happy Quilting! 😸




  1. My girls loved Anne of Green Gables when they were young. Wonderful gift for a sweet little girl!

  2. This is wonderful 😍 She will treasure that for many years. We still have a doll you made about 30 years ago! ❤ Sarah
