They are all so adoreable!!  I think Ernie is my favorite (I LOVE his hair Cheesy)  Did you use a pattern or just make it up (I think I remember you mentioning a book somewhere on this thread)??

Great Job!!  I can't wait to see the finished pics!!

that is really amazing... will prarie dawn in the picture? hah, the list of neat muppet/sesame street characters could go on forever, especially if you counted fraggle rock, the dark crystal, labryinth, etc  etc.

Thanks!  It is hard trying to decide when to stop! I am such a fan of anything Henson (as you might have guessed from my profile picture) that I don't want leave anyone out! But, due to time and $$, I had to put limits on myself.  For the Sesame Street quilt I decided to stick to only the characters that I had a pattern in the quilting book for.  (Bert, Ernie, The Count, Kermit, Elmo, Grover, Cookie Monster, Oscar, Big Bird).  I'm done with all the squares for this one now so all I need to do now is quilt them all together!

It was hard to decide who to include for the Muppet Show quilt, since I'm making most of the patterns myself.  The book included patterns for Kermit, Miss. Piggy, Gonzo, Animal, and Fozzie.  Patterns I'm making myself are Rowlf (completed), Bunsen and Beaker (completed), Scooter (completed), The Swedish Chef, The two old men, Sam the Eagle, and The Electric Mayhem Group.

I have such a fun time going to the fabric store and picking out all the different materials for them!  Every time I go I always get the "what the heck are you making?" question from the fabric cutter!  I haven't been able to find the right color for Fozzie's fur yet, and his needs to be exact.

My Mom and I were going through her stash of quilting mags and I found a mag with an article about the friendship quilts that the staff at the muppet workshop make. I had wanted to try making one but didn't think i would be able to make it until I saw the awesome blocks that you made anna-begins.Keep up the good work! i can't wait until my copy of the book from amazon.com arrives so i can make a new quilt for my futon and a kermie pillow.

Ok - I need you guys to help me.  I've come to a road block with making my Muppet quilt.  I can't find any fun fur - or any other fabric for that matter - for Fozzie Bear. He has to be just the right color since he's one of the main characters.  The colors I've been finding are either too dark of a brown or too light of a brown. He's an orangy-brown.  I bought some fur that was close and tried dying it with some orange and it turned out to be a huge mess!  Here's  a picture of what he looks like.  If anyone can tell me where I can find something in his color - I would be so grateful!

What I'm thinking of immediately amounts to cannibalism Smiley  What about dismantling a thrift store stuffed animal?  I haven't seen similar colors at the fabric stores, but maybe something more "loved" would match?

As someone who loves her stuffed animals it was hard for me to suggest that, but it's all I can think of  Cheesy

Oh no...don't hurt the stuffies!?!  I was thinking that you could get a new piece of fabric and distress it by several wash/dry cycles.  Would staining it with a strong tea solution help achieve the color after it has been 'distressed'?  I used to make miniature teddy bears and I would stain my fabric pieces with strong tea or coffee.

Anna--Do you have *two* books or just one? I found the Muppet Show book, but I can't find one for Sesame Street. I'm thinking of getting it/them for my mom so she can make a Sesame Street quilt for my daughter (I'd do it, but I'm expecting #2 and really won't have time).
