Quilters Lead Pieceful Lives.

Sesame Street

Made for the new great-grandchild of my mother-in-law's friend, this colorful and adorable quilt is sure to be a long-time treasured companion.


 
...and the back:

 
 
It is from a free pattern!  The large figures are fussy cut from a panel. The rest of the setting pieces, sashes and borders, and binding are all from the associated coordinated fabrics.
 

The quilting is free-form stiple. I used matching threads in most of the areas, and transparent monofilament in the rest.

Hard to believe I've made over 130 quilts and this is the first time the Sesame Street characters have made an appearance. So I would like to dedicate this quilt to Sonia Manzano, who played Maria, and just retired after 44 years of being a positive role model for our nation's children.

I love it! When I bought my fabrics, I didn't see those others. They're super!
