Bloggers Quilt Festival: Hop, Skip and a Jump Quilt

I’m posting this as part of ParkCityGirl’s Festival of Quilts… I made this quilt for my (now 3 year old) son, Mr. L. It took a long time (a difficult pregnancy sidetracked me for months), and he hasn’t quite fallen in love with it like I have, but it makes me happy whenever I see it! There’s nothing better than that!(Front!) I loved the pattern (Denyse Schmidt’s Hop, Skip and a Jump) as well as the fabric (most of it Jackie Shapiro’s Sweetpea line).
This is the back. I think I like the back better (shhh)! Perhaps this is why it took me so long to finish his quilt. :)Its my first stippled quilt, and it took HOURS! My hand went numb, but I like the finished result. I have not stippled quite so close together on subsequent quilts…

    What a lovingly pieced, quilted and gifted quilt! I love the greens and someday, he will know what a treasure it is and love it because YOU made it!

    Love the colors for a baby boy. I just finished making a baby quilt and as my daughter said when she saw it ” You were right it REALLY is quilted tightly.” Yours is quilted about the same level. The nice thing about that is you can wash it alot and the seams are probably safe.

    That will be a treasure for your son as he grows up. I like the back the best, too!

    You basically made two different quilts! And, used one as a back – and they both are lovely! That really was a lot of work – but, it really is worth it…

    Both sides are great. You did an awesome job!

    I love the colors! Beautiful quilt–it’s really two quilts in one!

    i love this. and that was a lot of work!

  14. Posted October 11, 2009 at 9:00 am | Permalink

    Lovely quilt! It is great with a quilt you can use on both sides. I haven’t done that yet, but this is certainly an inspiration!

    What a great quilt. Reversible!!! I am sure your son will grow to love it. After all, you made it for him. Thanks for sharing.

    I love your quilt! both sides of it! why not call it the two-faced-Tussie?

    and I’m in favor of less stippling, too! makes them so much ….stiffer?

    what an awesome quilt! There is a bright side to him not getting too attached, yet. It won’t sustain as much damage in the little years and when he can appreciate, it’ll still be in great shape!

    Absolutely beautiful quilt. Thanks for participating in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival.

    this is awesome. i love the idea of a quilt being reversible and just as much fun on the back as on the front.

  20. Posted October 12, 2009 at 3:25 pm | Permalink

    Its wonderful! He will love it I am sure.

    I love your stacked coin quilt, it’s my favorite design, although I haven’t made one yet. I must get on that.

    What a beautiful quilt. It is a lot of work to many two quilts into one. It is something I have not yet tried.
