This week I finished quilting the Bear Quilt for Aunt Sharon. Sharon's son, Erik, went on a special bear hunt last year, so when she found this bear batik fabric, she knew it would be perfect for him!
Sharon used the pattern Take 5, but she turned the blocks a little differently than the pattern instructed so that the directional bears would all be right side up. I quilted it with a dark gold thread and used the pantograph Fossil. Sharon did a great job piecing this one, and I think the whole quilt is beautiful.
Sharon pieced the back with batik fabric also. It was a little tricky to center the whole thing, but it was pretty close.
I think Cousin Erik will love it!!
I recently added four new pantographs to my design collection. The one above, Fossil, and Fandango, Enchant, and Orange Peel. So far Fossil is a hit. The next client quilt is going to be using this design also.
I'd love to quilt for you if you see something you like!
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
