Oh Pooh!!! - A Finish


I can't claim this adorable little quilt as all my own.  I only quilted it.  My mother embroidered all the cute little Pooh characters. 


Of course, I had to show some up close of her handy work.

 

Eeyore has always been my favorite of the Hundred Acre Wood. 

 
This Eeyore with the net is my absolute favorite. 

 
I quilted it surrounding each of the embroidered pieces with a honey pot shape.  I used EQ7 and drew myself one up since I had no luck finding one on the Internet. 


I also signed her name inside the quilting.  She is planning to make one for each of her grandchildren to put in their hope chest.  A family heirloom to treasure for years to come.

 
 
It took longer for me to find the perfect backing for this treasure than quilting it, but I thought the honeycombs fit with perfectly with Pooh.  Oh, thank goodness for the local fabric shop.   That's two projects done for the week.  Both with a lot of yellow.
