Winnie the Pooh progress

Whew! The Winnie the Pooh top is done! I managed to find a navy fabric I was much happier with, and the top managed to go together quite painlessly in the end!

I have marked two of the setting squares with the quilting design I've chosen, and now I need to motivate myself to mark the remaining six setting squares. I've even managed to purchase the batt for the quilt, and this morning I'm going out to get the backing fabric for the quilt, and also for the Winchester quilt.

It would be fun to piece the back for the quilts, but right now I feel just too darned lazy to do it. It's not the most stash friendly option for the back of the quilt, but gosh it's a good feeling getting this quilt moving after being on the UFO list for such a long time.

I had the very best time at the quilt store yesterday, and it was super fun being on the other side of the table. We made Christmas gifts, and I made up a bag. I'll share a picture of it tomorrow when I finsh the last of the binding. It's super cute, and I'll be giving it to Grandpa's wife along with the scarf I knitted for her.

I also made up the mug and mug mat for Amy's netball coach the other day, and I'll share a picture of that tomorrow also when I have a little more time on my hands.

Have a great day everyone! x o x

What a cute quilt, and that pieced border really sets it all off. :D Great job, girl! Can't wait to see pictures of your other finishes. :)

Way to go! Finishing this UFO must feel so good. Are you going to quilt it by hand or by machine?

I love the unexpected squares in the outside border. Gives it a kind of Aztec feel. Love that bright lime green :-)

That looks lovely. I have a piece of the Winnie the Pooh fabric - it is going in a quilt for my daughter of all her favourite characters. I love the colours though - I would have probably played safe and gone pastel but this is wow and could suit any age group.

Very good going Tazzie ! The Pooh quilt looks great.

The Pooh quilt is really coming together. I bet it feels great completing that UFO. Looking forward to seeing tomorrow's pictures.

Trying to get caught up on my blog reading - I'm so far behind. You have been a very busy lady the past few days! I love the Winnie the Pooh quilt - your colors and the design of the quilt are wonderful! I'd completely forgotten about this quilt - must feel so good to have it finished. I think it's the lime green that really makes it sing - I love that color!

Looks like your switch to Beta was easy. I'm afraid to do it because so many people say they've lost things. A solution to the email problem is for us just to put our email addy's in our post.

This is a really cute quilt. Make sure you show us how you are going to quilt it.

great job finishing the top - sometimes the not-stash-friendly option is the best way to go to get something done.

Very nice, Tazzie--the border treatment carrying out the colors to the edge was an inspired touch.

Dawn said...

Oh lets hear it for Winnie the Pooh!!!!! And the quilt!!!!!

ForestJane said...

That turned out nice! And what a relief to have it off your UFO list, too. :)

Are you going to quilt it yourself or send it off to be quilted for you?
