Summersville {a finished quilt!!}

Today has been a good day, because it’s quilt delivery day!  🙂  I was able to deliver this newly finished quilt to my best friend’s little brother (a/k/a my little brother by love).  Now, with parents as good looking as these two, I just know the little bundle of joy is going to be adorable.  And I can’t wait to snuggle and kiss all over him!

quilt delivery day!

I have been hoarding a Summersville jelly roll for a couple of years now.  I wanted to save it for just the right quilt.  I was so happy to find out about this baby and just knew this was the occasion for my precious Summersville fabric.

Here is the top before it was quilted and washed.  I love the colors and the aqua sashing seems perfect for a new little boy.  To make this quilt, I followed Camille Roskelley’s tutorial she shared while making her own Summersville quilt.  You can find it here.

Now the quilt has been washed and dried to crinkly perfection.  I’ve already given it a test snuggle to make sure it is good enough for baby 😉

It was difficult to capture the true colors of this quilt in photographs because of the weather we’ve been having around here lately, but you get the idea.

Once again I used these adorable bugs on the back.  They are just too cute not to!

The best thing about this quilt is that it was given to someone who I know absolutely loves it and appreciates all that goes into making something by hand.  It made my heart so full to pass this quilt on today and see the joy it brought to the expecting parents.

Hope you are all having a great day as well.

  1. So gorgeous – I’m sure it will be very treasured!

    I was wondering if you have any tips on washing your quilts for the first time once they’ve been finished? I pre-wash all my fabrics before getting started, but I’m SO scared to wash a quilt once I’ve made it in fear of the colours running.

    I really love that crinkly effect that you have going on with that quilt! 🙂

    Thanks, Erin.

  2. Very cute! In response to the color fading question…I HIGHLY RECOMMEND “Shout Color Catchers”. Throw one in with your quilts and wash in cold water. They are amazing. I do not pre-wash my fabrics and the color that bleeds out in washing attaches itself to the Color Catchers.
