Chocolate Teddy Bears and Sand Buckets

So my first applique quilting project is complete, however minimal it was.
The patterns are supposed to be a teddy bear "jack in the box", a sand bucket and shovel, and a top--all mimicking the patterns in the flannel center of the crib quilt. I'm not too sure if my top looks like a top or a pacifier!

I also added some coordinating trims to fleece receiving blankets; that bear is machine appliqued. They are now part of a layette basket that will be a silent auction item for my church's fund raiser at a dinner dance this weekend. As you see, the layette also includes a few other purchased items.

A fun way to use daughter Anna Maria's Chocolate Lollipop, just enough to give it a little "pop", don't you think?
