Teddy Patchwork

I finished quilting Teddy Patchwork last night and was able to sew the binding this morning. Since this is a donation quilt, I stitched the binding onto the back then pulled the binding to the front and machine stitched it down. The whole binding process takes about an hour or 1 1/2 hours to complete (if the binding is made ahead of time!). All that is left to finish is to hand sew the bias edge of the label and write the message. This quilt will be heading to Texas to my friend, Paula for her ASAP (Aid to School Age Parents) Christmas Quilt Drive. This will make four quilts for Paula's goal of 40 quilts by the end of November 2008.

Here is a close up of a Teddy Patchwork square and, of course, the Popcorn (I'd link you guys to Willow Leaf Studio but their website is down) quilting pantograph. Honest, I'll take Popcorn off the table and sew something else, soon! I promise!

LindaJ has generously added her Cher's 'Gym Floor ' to be donated to Paula. Thanks Linda! YOU ROCK :)

Also sent already is my 'Wonky Labor Day Challenge' hosted by JudyL. Thanks, again Judy for hosting this challenge and sharing your pattern.
The fourth quilt to be included is the Oconomowoc Guild Ugly Quilt Challenge quilt...in all it's 'ugly-ness'! Some little one will just love the kitties and doggies that are on this quilt, even if I don't love it :)

How generous to send those quilts. They're all cute. I'm thrilled that one made from my challenge is going to such a good cause. Thanks!

I don't guess I'll ever get tired of seeing that popcorn pattern! I don't think the guild challenge quilt is ugly at all--I like it!

You have been a busy girl. I am so behind on sewing. It isn't funny. How about you take a vacation and head down here to Alabama and spend a week with me. :)

I love the teddy bear quilt. i need to make a baby quilt and think I am going to use that pattern. Thanks for the inspiration.
