Quilt for a new baby boy

One of my good friends had her baby on thursday (a week early) a little boy they named Hayden, weighing 8lb 14oz.

I wanted to give them something special that they didn't already have (2nd child) and found this lovely "Pooh Bear" panel at SL the other day. You cant see it in the photos but I stitched around all the characters, and Embroidered his name onto the front, and then found this lovely starry material for the backing.
I was hoping it would be a little more puffy where I sewed around the characters but as I had to use a cotton wadding (the whole thing is 100% cotton materials as her oldest suffers from excema and has been told this one probably will too) it didn't really puff up.
Overall I'm really happy with it and it was received with great appreciation, so I guess thats all that matters really.

The quilt looks cute! Cotton wadding is probably better - you shouldn't put quilts in the cot or bassinette because of SIDS (sorry my SIDS police hat came out again - after losing my nephew to it when he had a quilt in his cot I can't help myself) but with cotton wadding it's breathable so not such a hassle. It will puff up more with washing and use, and I love the way you have embroidered his name.

I absolutely love Classic Pooh. Both of my girls have Classic Pooh prints on their walls. A lovely little keepsake with the embroidery. Too cute!
