Elmo quilt finished & infinity scarf

Woohoo! Elmo quilt is finished. I borrowed ideas from several quilts I've seen around the interwebs.

There was fabric left over, so I made an Elmo pillowcase.

This is the back. I hope my friend likes it. The Elmo figure was part of a Sesame Street panel and I hated to waste it. So here are some of the other characters. She wanted the back to match the Dr. Seuss quilt I made for her grandson but the white wonky dots was out of print. This is the yellow version.

Here is it rolled up.

And rolled a little better. The binding is the same stripe as the border.

First time to make mitered corners. Very pleased with the corners.

Okay, a blurry shot of the label. I don't wear my glasses when I'm taking photos.

A little infinity scarf made from some of the fabric I bought in Italy. 

This is how it looks with two loops. Imagine how cute it will look when I wear it. The fabric is cotton voile and I have enough to make another scarf.

  1. Well, I had to check out this post since Elmo is the name our granddaughter has picked out for her soon-to-be-born little brother. (Well, that and Melman, who I think is a giraffe in the movie Madagascar). Your quilt is so cute, and I really like how you incorporated the rest of the panel on the back.
