A second quilt for a second son

Second quilt and pillow

I’m so giddy over the new quilts in the family!  I’m so ready to make another one.  And, thank you, those of you who mentioned that binding isn’t as bad as at sounds.  I may just give it a try…

Second quilt and pillow

So this one is for Eamonn.  I love the colors in it.  And I’m suddenly thinking that I need to make the whole family polka dot jammies.  How fun would that be??

    1. Hm, I’m wondering if you like them… 😉 Thanks! I’m equally as pleased with them.

  6. I love this one too. I have a few of these fabrics and it makes me think…heck, I could do that. Using larger squares looks so cool…and I see it as being something I could manage.
    Thanks again for the inspiration!

    1. That’s exactly what made me think I could do it – no complicated patterns involved. Everything is either a fat quarter, half a fat quarter, or a quarter of a fat quarter. It was great for getting my feet wet.

  7. I am getting inspired to make my quilt. These look great. I cant wait to post on my blog “here is my first quilt!!!” Congratulations!!!

  8. Don’t listen to them! Binding my first quilts is killing me! I actually ended up just topstitching the first one, after several awful attempts at doing it by hand.

    But seriously, they are lovely, as is everything you make. You’ve become one of my daily inspirations.

    1. Aw, thank you, that’s sweet!

      I’m thinking I have to try binding at this point, and just see for myself. Wish me luck! And I hope you manage to finish yours up without too much trouble.

  9. Your quilts are wonderful! I love the photo of them side-by-side. I just started on my own quilt adventures this summer and am now slightly addicted. Amy Butler and quilts – gotta love that combination. I was scared of binding at first too, but armed with a binding tape maker and instructions continuous binding from HELLOmynameisHeather I am on a roll. Good luck!
