Three Small Quilts


Back in March, Panda Man told me that Pooh Bear needed a quilt.  I have been busy with a lot of other projects, but I decided that it was time to make Pooh Bear his own quilt. 


Panda Man was at the quilt shop with me and found this Angry Bird fabric.  He fell in love with it and asked me to buy some for him.  He was so good that I couldn't resist.  I decided that the Angry Bird fabric would be perfect for Pooh Bear's quilt.  I had some left over Minky from the back of My Cuddle Quilt, so that became the backing. 


I quilted it simply with straight lines every three inches.  Then I bound it by machine with Kona Black.  Pooh Bear definitely approves. 


Quilt Stats #107
Name:  Pooh's Bird Quilt
Pattern:  Whole Cloth
Quilting Design:  Vertical Lines every 3 inches
Fabric:  Angry Birds and Kona Black
Backing: Ultra soft minky
Amount Used: 2 yards
Batting:  Frankensteined Warm and White
Size: About 30 x 30 inches
Date Finished: June 2014
What I Learned: 
  • If Pooh Bear gets a quilt, then Leonard will want one too. 


Thankfully, Panda Man also approves of the quilt. 


Like I mentioned above, if Pooh Bear gets a quilt then Leonard wants one.  So, I made a similar quilt for Leonard.  I used an animal print I already had in my stash, and the rest of the black Minky from My Cuddle Quilt.  (Leonard is happy to show you how fuzzy it is.)


I quilted Leonard's quilt with straight lines every three inches as well.  I also bound it with Kona Black fabric.  I am grateful Leonard approves. 


Quilt Stats #108
Name:  Leonard's Cheetah Quilt
Pattern: Whole Cloth
Quilting Design: Vertical Lines every 3 inches
Fabric: Animal print from stash and Kona Black
Backing: Ultra soft minky
Amount Used: 2 yards
Batting: Frankensteined Warm and White
Size: About 30 x 30 inches
Date Finished: June 2014
What I Learned:
  • If Pooh Bear and Leonard get a quilt, then George will want one too.

Cheetah was quick to inform me that Leonard gave him the quilt.  (Kind of funny to see a 12 year old cuddle under such a small quilt.)


Monkey came down to my craft room and saw the quilts for Pooh Bear and Leonard.  He wanted to know where his quilt was.  I pulled out the rest of the panel from his Thomas the Train Bag and showed him.  Once he knew his quilt was coming, he was happy to wait.  I fussy cut the trains from the panel and added the red sashing to make his quilt the same size as the other two.  I had to run to the quilt shop to buy more Minky.  George approves of the red dot minky. 


I stitched in the ditch around the red octagons, and a quarter inch away from the seams on the red sashing.  Then I added a blue sketch fabric for the binding.  I am grateful that Curious George likes his new train quilt. 


Quilt Stats #107
Name:  George's Train Quilt
Pattern:  Train panel with sashing added
Quilting Design:  In the ditch
Fabric:  From my stash
Backing: Red dot minky
Amount Used: 2 yards
Batting:  Warm and White
Size: About 30 x 30 inches
Date Finished: June 2014
What I Learned:
  • If I make one animal a quilt, I will have to make three.

So happy that my Monkey also likes the quilt. 


It is kind of like the story "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" by Laura Numeroff.  Now there is one simple fuzzy quilt for each child favorite stuffed animal.  All made in one day to keep things "fair" in our house.  Do you have to make things in triplicate (or for each child)?

XX,
Jasmine

  9. Oh my goodness, those are so cute! My five-year old great niece's baby doll has a quilt, diaper bag, lovey, and burp cloth to match the ones I made for my granddaughter. I have a new granddaughter due in about five weeks so the baby doll will need some new bibs, and blankies too.

  11. Oh, I routinely have triplicates of things (see Christmas post about monkeys: http://www.busyneedle.ch/2013/12/christmas-oxymoron/). Even as teenagers, sometimes surprisingly, they all want the same thing. :-) Well done!

  16. I love this post! I have 3girls and it was the same in my house. You never made just one! It was always in three. I love it. My girls always had their own style of dress but with the same fabric, or the same blanket in their favorite color. They are grown and I still buy and work in three's
