Whitney made a baby quilt - stash style

22 comments
Whitney's friends adopted a little baby boy and she spent the day sewing it at my house Wednesday and then I quilted it for her. It turned out darling. The nursery is in primary colors with punches of dots. So this is our first SUMMER STASH QUILT! It turned out darling. It has white minkee on the back and all kinds of squares including minkee and chenille on the front. Everything from stash. Yayy Whitney.

Great! Thanks for the reminder--it doesn't have to be some fancy pattern. Sometimes nothing beats a nice patchwork. :-)

Hi Nanette,
Just checked Mark's blog and was surprised to see your post to me. I know exactly what you mean. E-mail me at seasewhapy@yahoo.com, please. Also, Happy Birthday a bit belated. Mine was June 2nd. Smiles to you! Sandi

That is so cute! You gals did such a great job. I'm sure the friend will cherish it forever.

Great baby quilt! I bet that is well and truly loved!

Love the colors and textures. Should be good to stimulate baby --I'll bet it becomes a beloved "blankie". I might borrow your idea. I'll bet big "babies" would like a lap quilt like that too. Ha. Luv, Nerm

Darling quilt, great colors. Anything with polka dots is awesome! I'd love to commit to the summer stash challenge but not sure I could abide by the rules. Does it mean you can't buy ANY fabric or just no new fabric when making quilts from your stash???

such a cute quilt...the color scheme is fantastic! I love the idea of a summer stash quilt(s). I may have to join in.

Way to go Whitney - it's darling and will be loved and enjoyed to pieces!

Blakely said...

Another great quilt, and you used part of your stash.

Ravenhill said...

Reallly beautiful and how nice to collaborate that way!

Melanie said...

Well done! I'm still hand sewing parts of mine before I can even hit the machine! can't wait to see what else you make.

I love children and bright colours. Here in the UK it is still the fashion for pastels and beige in both the nursery and on babies and youngsters. Back when mine were little it was trendy for bright primary colours thankfully.

I love it! I'm sure the baby's mother will love it too.

Erin said...

Wow Whitney! I'm ever so impressed! It's so cute and bright! I like the quilting job you did Nanette. One day, I'll have a machine that does that too!

Ulla said...

That was really fast! And the quilt is lovely, both the mother and the baby will love it. I'm still just clearing my to do -list before I can start sewing my stash challenge quilt.
