Quilt Stories - Muppets 2014

This quilt started when my husband's good friend called to tell us his wife was pregnant with their first child.

She was absolutely in love with muppet characters...... and couldn't find any bedding anywhere..... and then I saw this navy muppet fabric in my local JoAnn's.  I had already had great success with crib sheets and burp cloths... and though Elmo isn't technically a muppet... I thought she'd enjoy these items  (the wood grain crib sheet went to my grandson along with his pirate quilt.)

 Making the pirate quilt was so much fun - I rolled with the concept!

  I used some of the same fabrics..... and some other from my stash.... and came up with the quilt below...

And I couldn't remember which way the seam was supposed to when piecing the backing  ( somebody told me once - it was either vertical or horizontal)

So I pulled one of my usual funky moves.... and did both :-)  And I like the way it turned out!

I do have to say that it was a pretty cool gift.... and I have had the pleasure of spotting it in my friend's FB posts of their son more than once!  I am good with letting things go when I make them - because I truly get my pleasure from the making - and the good vibes I have for the people I create for.....  but I really do enjoy seeing my creations used and loved :-)
