Quilt Numero Dos


TA-DA!!! It’s finally finished!  This one was also almost entirely hand-stitched.  Hence the reason it took me several months to complete.  Though lots of people think I’m crazy, I am a big fan of sewing by hand.  I worked on this quilt at the airport, in the doctors office, in the car waiting to pick up Spencer…  I love being able to work on crafty projects when I have a bit of spare time.

I LOVE how the final product turned out.  It’s random scrappy hodge-podge of colors brightens up pictures of picnics and outings.  It just makes me happy!  And I love that it contains a little piece of all of my sewing projects so far.  It's already filled with good memories.  I have definitely been bitten by the quilting bug.  I’m working on my third quilt and already have plans for my fourth.   


I asked Spencer to hold the quilt up so I could get a couple of shots of it all spread out.  This wasn’t quite what I had in mind.  Silly boy. 


Little lamb.  I already have plans for another photo shoot featuring this quilt (just can’t get enough).  Stay tuned. 


  1. Oh my GOODNESS! Whitney it is so GORGEOUS! I am totally impressed!!! Can't wait to see it in more fun photo shoots! So cute!!

  2. What a happy, fun quilt!! The other day I was admiring a quilt that my roommate Whitney has here, and I decided that some day I want to make one of my own. I'm not sure I have the patience to do it just yet, but it's talented people like you who make me think that maybe--just maybe--some day I'll find enough of a well of desire in me that I can get over my ADD and fear of quilting failure. :) Seriously though, this quilt is super cute.

  3. wow---and I mean wow! I know I'm always saying amaze me with your craftiness! I'm always impressed with you! It's beautiful! I love the bright colors and that you used pieces from all your past creations. That's clever.

  4. I LOVE it! You must be building up quite a stash of scraps. That's my hold up...I can't afford to buy bunches of new fabric and I don't have a good stash of fabrics yet. Oh well. I'll just enjoy yours!

  5. It is beautiful! Amazing! That is so incredible that you sewed it by hand! WOW! :) I love it! It makes me all happy inside! :)

  6. 1. Gasp! I LOVE this quilt. Words really cannot express how much I want to unlawfully steal it from you and keep it forever.
    2. I miss you and Spency. Desperately. Perhaps we'll have to move next door to you two instead of heading off to Ohio. Please keep your eyeballs peeled for our immediate arrival.

  7. That's amazing! I love hand stitching as well. So much more personal!! We need to be e-mail friends. Love your ideas!

  8. Looks wonderful Whitney! And of course, Spencer's poses with the quilt make it look all the more adorable .. . (but don't tell him I said that! =)

  9. I love it...and to know you stitched it all by hand! Amazing! Miss you girl:)
