It's the time of the year again when Amy hosts the Bloggers Quilt festival! If you came here through her site, welcome! I'm Anne, I've been quilting for a couple of years now, I buy way too much fabric, have way too many unfinished quilts but luckily, once in a while I actually manage to finish one!
I hesitated between two quilts, but finally decided to enter my Winnie-the Pooh quilt because of the story behind it and the hand quilting.
First I fussy cut all the different Winnie-the-Pooh drawings. They were in a soft greyish-green colour that coordinated really well, in my opinion, with blues, greens and purples from my stash. I used lots of solids because I didn't want to drown poor Winnie in busy prints.
There were 8 different scenes in all: Winnie up in a tree, Winnie trying to get in a tree, Winnie looking at something, all of them really cute. So I made 8 blocks, all roughly the same size and bound them in Kona snow. This was the finished quilt top:
For the back, I chose the same colours, while the binding is one of the solid blues I used in the log cabin blocks.
Now for the stats:
