Don't get use to this

Gone for 3 months, then 2 post in 2 days....
don't get use to this.
I had a baby quilt request from a new mom to be.
She wanted Pooh but I couldn't find Pooh fabric
(that I liked) anywhere. 
So then she said the baby's father liked soccer,
so something with soccer.
Couldn't find that either.
Very short on time, shower was today.
I found a picture of Pooh, had it enlarged.
Kind of looked like Pooh was kicking up his leg
How about Pooh playing soccer?

I had some Pure by Sweetwater in my stash, came out years ago.
I was going to make Pooh in black but a quilting friend of
mine suggested blue for a baby boy.

I love the way it turned out and
so did the soon to be mama.

And of course I had to quilt his name.
All freehand quilting with SoFine thread
and 2 layers of 80/20 batting.
