Pooh Bear Patchwork

I started making this quilt simply because I had fun pulling the fabrics.  I was gifted a bunch of cotton fabric from my cousin, who had previously been on a bag-making kick.  I'm not sure what she did with the Classic Pooh print, but I knew it was destined for a baby girl quilt.

I had "low volume" in my head as I pulled fabric, although I think it turned out more "soft volume" instead.  The prints are a combination of tiny florals, vintage sheet-type florals and a few very small scale prints in addition to fussy-cut pieces of the Pooh print.  The pink scottie dogs are one of my favorites :)

I quilted it in straight lines on either side of the seams (is there a name for this style of quilting??  It seems like there should be!) in a light pink thread.  It came out pretty well, with only a few puckers.  The back of the quilt was also a freebie, but the binding was purchased from Joann's - a grey and white polka dot from one of Denyse Schmidt's lines for the store.  I even managed to piece the batting together from leftovers using Easy-Knit Batting and Seam tape.

This sweet quilt is the first one I've made that I'll truly be sad to see go.  It's going to a friend who is expecting her first baby, a little girl named Harper.  Hopefully Harper and her parents enjoy it.
