Silly Old Bear - Ethan Jeremiah's Quilt

Last week I made a Quick Strippie quilt for my niece's baby shower.  I waited until the last minute and needed it to be really quick!  I've known she was having a baby boy for a couple of months.... why, oh why, did I wait until the last minute?

Having the power off for 5 hours during my planned sewing time on Saturday, turned a normally peaceful activity into a stressful one.  More about the power outage can be found on my Homemaking Dreams Blog HERE.

Winnie The Pooh fabric from Mama's fabric stash.

I finished the binding early Sunday morning and started on the label before church....

No time for a photo shoot!  The sewing machine motor wasn't even cool as we were going out the door to the shower!

My niece loved the quilt.  Whew!  What a whirlwind weekend!

Quick Strippie pattern can be found HERE.

Thanks for the quick quilt idea. My nephew's wife just had a boy and I've been debating what to do....this is it.

Not sure if my first comment went through: I love this quilt and you are amazing. I would have run by WalMart before church. LOL

And, I thought that no one else waited until the last day to get projects finished!!!! You are truly a member of the family now.

Talk about pressure, you really came through. Great Winnie Pooh quilt. Baby and move will love it.
