Elmo Loves Red Storybook Quilt



Here is another Storybook Quilt "Elmo Loves Red"! If you followed Winnie the Pooh Storybook Quilt same basic technique of ripping the book apart and putting it back together in quilt form.



Instead of alternate blocks I used wavy striped borders. 
There is a little bit of a challenge doing these because there is "bumps," flaps things that need to be cut off. Every book is different and that makes this a fun project to do!


I really love the bright colors and added some fun extras, like the sunflower, store-bought Abby Cadabby, and I cut and stuffed the Elmo Loves Red Logo.


The cute frog moves back and forth to Oscars Head! As you can see from Elmo's picture it doesn't make him very happy!


For the back of the quilt I used Crayon fabric.

 I salvaged another piece of the book and sewed it on the back for the label.
