happy quilt 2

Yep, you probably guessed I was up to a second Happy Quilt.  Remember the one I made Emily?  Well, this one was made at the same time, I just left the backing until I couldn’t stand looking at the quilt top unfinished anymore.

 Even the dog got sick of it laying on the floor and decided to use is as a restroom, seriously, what the heck?!

I got going on the back, and am so glad I just sucked it up an finished it.  Piecing letters intimidates me because I know how long it can take.  Luckily it seemed to go quicker than I thought it would!  I used a nice hunk of Sherbet Pips for the back, it’s so pretty and soft.  One of these days I’ll get a picture of both their beds made with the quilts.

I keep trying to, but after we get the room picked up I totally forget about getting pictures and then the next time I look it’s destroyed again.

Twin Size Quilt, check!
Yay for summer!

    Beautifully done. Piecing letters would worry me, too. I’m sure Natalie loves it…and hopefully the dog won’t anymore! :)

    You are truly a quilter now! Getting sick of seeing unfinished tops is exactly how it goes ;)

    Love how happy both these quilts are! The colors are so delicious!

    I LOVE it! I really need to try my hand at a quilt, but they are so intimidating.

    How special for your girls! And it’s adorable, the colors are all perfect together. I think you’ve convinced me to do patchwork quilts for my boys’ beds.

    the pieced letters are fantastic! now i’m almost wishing my daughter didn’t have such a long name, so i could try it. :)

    I love this! This type of quilt will always be my very favorite — patchwork and special!! So sweet!

    So super cute! I bet their room looks adorable!
    And it doesn’t stay any cleaner as they get older. I put a sign on the outside of my 16 year old daughters room. It says ” My room is not messy, it is an obstacle course to make me fit”.

    So beautiful.

    I love this– the colors are so fresh and bright! I also may be partial to it because of the name on it :) I love the patchwork letters, such a special touch!

    It’s so pretty! I love the back especially!

    Looks great! What kind of batting do you recommend? I am working on my first quilt for my son currently. Thanks, Cheryl!

  20. kristin 06.12.2012 at 4:17 pm #

    Yay, so happy! Congrats on finishing -I REALLY love her name on the back. Way cool.

  21. Larissa 06.12.2012 at 4:25 pm #

    Love that quilt! Huzzah for finishing both and for the pieced name in back. And I hear you about the room. It is sparkling clean, then 30 minutes later it looks like a soccer mob came through.

  22. Emily 06.12.2012 at 4:47 pm #

    Beautiful! Love the name too. :)

  23. Katy Cameron 06.12.2012 at 5:06 pm #

  25. Malisa Price 06.13.2012 at 12:39 am #

    Love, love, love this quilt! Was it hard to do?

  26. Fab 06.13.2012 at 2:05 am #

    Is very pretty. Love the back.

  27. Jennadesigns 06.13.2012 at 10:29 am #

    So beautiful! I need to get working on my son and daughter’s twin quilts. These are just precious! I love the names on the back. Way to go Anna!

  28. Anna 06.14.2012 at 12:30 pm #

    hey Cheryl! I use warm & white cotton batting (you can get it just about anywhere, joanns, hancock, hobby lobby, etc. – be sure to use a coupon!)

    Thanks Malisa, I think this would be a great beginner quilt. Simple patchwork squares are always a good starting point. :)

  29. Delia 06.14.2012 at 1:05 pm #

    Love the bright happy fabrics! Your girls are so lucky!

  30. Happy Together 06.14.2012 at 1:43 pm #

    Such pretty colors!!! I’m dying to do some more quilting right now. I’m hoping to make a few for Christmas presents :)

  31. Rachel Hauser 06.14.2012 at 3:38 pm #

    Twin sized quilts are alwasy an accomplishment. What a cool idea to put names on the back of bed quilts like that. Makes it even more of an heirloom that way!

  32. Dahlia 06.15.2012 at 2:38 am #

    Awesome job on piecing the letters (love that “n”)!!

  33. Jacqui 06.17.2012 at 4:40 am #

    Very pretty and I love the letters! I expect you just got better at sewing in between the letters on the first one and this one – I used to dread a variety of things, like making collars on shirts, but somehow they’re not so hard anymore. And I’m always glad when other bloggers admit to having a hard time finishing things up, I have a chronic case of that!

    this quilt is so fun and pretty and bright–all the best of summer.

  35. Tara 06.19.2012 at 9:25 am #

    oooh, I love it! it’s not only pretty, but it looks super comfy and snuggly. it has that clean, rumply, crisp, yet soft look of an already worn in beach house quilt if that makes ANY sense. lol.
