This quilt is brought to you by the letter and the #
Oh this quilt has been fun and easy to make! Always fun to see a quilt transform from this (Part 1)
...to this, isn't it!
Elmo and the background are both flannel. I had fun free-motion quilting this one with squiggles, circles and hearts using a rainbow thread. I outlined all the letters and Elmo's body, mouth, neckline and couldn't resist a big heart on his body. (And now that I'm thinking about it, I probably should have quilted around his nose....oh well, it's already in the wash.) I think it will fine. The whole quilt is only 3'x3' and I didn't want the quilting to be too dense as it's just big enough for our two year grand guy to drag around as his cuddle quilt. (Pssst...I even machine sewed the binding on! I know go figure, me the Queen of Hand Binding! LOL!)
As much as he loves Elmo, I think he's also going to love the softness of
this fleece backing embellished with a BIG #2:
I can't wait for our little guy's birthday party next weekend!
I know his reaction is going to be priceless, for as many of ya have commently previously, Elmo has been a fav of toddlers since our kids were young. See his reaction by clicking right here: Elmo Series Part 3 post. (LOL!)
I know, I'm having too much fun today!
Anyhoo....hubby is working a late shift today, so I'm off to start my Dog Gone Cute blocks.
That's what's going on in my little sewing world. So glad ya stop by!
