Small Winnie Quilt

geezerfolks_SharonG_FLFebruary 17, 2009

I was rummaging through some fabric and came across this Winnie the Pooh fabric that was 15" X WOF that kind of wanted me to do something with it, so I split it in half and this is the result. I finished it up yesterday and it ended up being 32" X 45" which I thought wasn't a bad size for a toddler.

Sharon, It is so cute and what a clever way to put it together. We are partical to Pooh since I used him for my DD and then she used him for her oldest.

Some lucky child is going to get a special quilt!

It came out great. You are so productive, you're putting us all to shame.

Thank you, Sally, DD3 was over and looked at the quilt and said this fabric is with the original Pooh. I really don't know what that means, but, ok.

Beverly, I don't feel productive since I used panels for those other quilts and pretty much the same for this one. I just added borders and backing. Although on this one, I did use batting with flannel backing. DD thought someone she knows would like to buy it for a baby shower, but I think it's too small for that.

Thanks, Rosa.

The thing I did with this quilt is something I've never ever done before. I started with the 'birthing' method, but instead of leaving an opening to turn it, I sewed all the way around it, cut a slit in the backing in one of the corners, turned it through the slit, slip stitched the slit back together and covered the slit with a label!

I forget who it was that posted she did this with some wallhangings and tablerunners, so thought I'd give it a try. I don't see why it couldn't be done with a larger quilt. The label would just have to be bigger, possibly a block left over from the quilt????

Sharon, our small quilt group made a baby quilt for the New Year Baby at our local hospital using the same Winnie the Pooh fabric. I fussy cut Winnie and friends and we did square in a square blocks with it. It turned out really cute.
