    My 1 yr old grandson loves all things Elmo. Does anyone know of an Elmo pattern for a quilt? I would love to do something other than just "elmo" fabric but will if I can't figure out a way to do something different. Any suggestions/ideas/ would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to everyone on this board you are all so helpful!

    How about a DIY Chenille Elmo in the center. It would be a very good tactile feature for a baby quilt. It would most likely need to be made apart from the quilt and appliqued, do to the chenille process.

    I could probably cut you out some appliques with my Cricut machine. Let me see if I can find an Elmo file.....

    I made my grandson an Elmo quilt using an outline of Elmo's head I found online (I believe it was from coloring pages), then used red, yellow & black fleece and appliqued it to the solid color quilt. Unfortunately I didn't take any photos of it. Grandson and quilt are in New Mexico, I'm in Nevada :cry:

    Do you still have this book?

    My little granddaughter loves Elmo. I am going to make her a quilt and was wondering if this might be appropriate. Thanks. Donna

    I like the chenille idea. If you use Chenille So Easy, you will be done so quickly. You could even do an outline of his face the full circles for the facial features or full chenille for his face.

    I have one in my head I haven't started yet. It is Elmo's full body on the quilt, done in fringe-cut strips of red fleece, sewn all over his body, to be 3-D and fur-like. Should be easy to sketch out the body on a background and fill in with the "fur" strips.
