June 8 – Day 1 Winnie the Pooh Quilt-A-Long

Winnie the Pooh Quilt ALong


June 8: Day 1.   Pull your fabrics

  • The pattern gives you measurements for the background and binding
  • For Pooh – I had a 9″ piece, Width of fabric of the yellow.  This was enough, until I cut the largest piece in half … So now my Winnie has a line in his forehead. If you are afraid of making mistakes, make sure you have more than 1/3 of a yard of the yellow.
  • For Piglet – I had a fat quarter of the light pink, with lots left over.
  • I’ll give you approximate amounts for Tigger & Eeyore, once I’m to that stage.
  • For the rest of the fabrics, I just raided my scraps …

This Quilt Along is being broken into small steps.  I’m planning for approximately half an hour each day.  Some days it may be a bit less, others a bit more. But that is the plan.

That’s it for today … just pulling your fabrics.

I’m participating in a blog hop later this month (June 22 – 25) and I’ve started that project … which will be a secret until I share it on the Blog Hop.

There’s also a request for a few more masks – so I need to work on that …


I’ve sandwiched what was originally going to be a baby quilt – until I changed my mind and finished the elephant quilt (see HERE)… and hopefully the no-longer for the baby quilt will go under my needle SOON!

Stitchin’ Time

I am aiming for 30 minutes/day – at least!  I switched from 15 minutes / day to 30 minutes/day in April!

  • 15 minute days:  January – May:  151 / 152
  • 30 min days/  June:  7 / 7
  • Total days in 2020: 158/ 159
  • Percentage = 99%

I revised my PHD in 2020 and added 6 more UFOs to the list.  So, I’m hoping that I’ll get them done!

    • Hi Donna,
      I had to go and check my numbers … I thought “she MUST be wrong!” But you’re correct … 40 have been completed … some were placemats, some were quilts … but 40! that really surprises me … and June isn’t over yet!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂

    • Hi Roseanne!
      Well, it’s not going to be that fast-paced … about 1/2 hour each day should do it! It’ll take about 2 1/2 weeks …
      Thanks for cheering us on!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
