(update: As of 5/7/06 - I have finally finished the Sesame Street Quilt!  You can see it here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=93914.0)

I have a brand new baby niece and my sister asked me to make her a Sesame Street Quilt.  I bought a book called "Quilting with the Muppets" on eBay.  I started making the squares for the Sesame Street Quilt (which will actually hang on the wall because of all the different types of fabric I'm using, some aren't "baby safe") and decided I needed to make a MUPPET SHOW quilt for myself!  So what if I'm 31?... I love the Muppets!  The problem is that the book has only 4 patterns for "Muppet Show Muppets" so I've been making some of them with my own pattern.  So far I've only made some squares & haven't started any of the actually quilting yet, or any of the satin stitching that's needed, but I'm having so much fun & I wanted to share some of the squares with you.

For the Sesame Street Quilt:




For the Muppet Show Quilt:





I didn't want to make this post too image heavy since it's not the finished project, but if you'd like to see more of the squares I've done so far you can check them out here:

(editing to add this) Here's what I've got done with the Sesame Street one so far!

Thanks! The book didn't include a pattern for Snuffie, but I think I'll be able to make my own for him.

You're very talented! I don't think I could do a "regular" quilt, let alone one like that.
