Used a Pooh panel to start with so it was nice and easy (pfftt. says she who quilted around every character!)
Thanks for everyone who helped out with advice.

And now I want to make a bassinet one, and a floor one to attach some play gym items to.

Snuzal - Your quilt turned out so nice. Great job on the binding. I can see why you want to do more.

Panel quilts are a lot of fun and a wonderful way to make something quick for little ones...

Speaking of little ones, congratulations on Baby Snuzel too!

thanks everyone, I really enjoyed it. the quilting around each character took such a long time and was incredibly awkward in some places, but I got there (just dont look too closely lol)

Great job on your first quilt project -- I started out with this same kind of project.

Quilting around each character can take a lot of time but the outcome is definitely worth it.

Congrats!
