The Bear is Walking

Starts Sept 3rd

I am in love with this pattern by LORNA and as soon as I posted it on my FB page, my daughter informed me this was HER quilt.  She still has her first Teddy Bear and had many of them growing up.  And she fondly calls her daughter Hannah-Bear or 'bear-bear' (because she is an girlanimal).


I lightened this up a little so you can see the paisley.  Who else has a paisley bear?


A variety of scrap brown paw blocks are ready and the sashings are ready.  Since I have a day of my sewing space to myself, I am going to put this center into it's flimsy stage as soon the outer footprint instructions come out.  I did purchase the pattern, but I am working along with the QAL taking advantage of Lorna's extra tips along the way.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

I got the last of my HST's cut out last night. Now to iron them open, and pull out the papers. I love all your scrappyness in the paw blocks.

He is so cool, and what a wonderful fabric for him, just mottled enough to imagine that is how his fur might be. Love the close up photo.

I love Lorna's patterns and love even more your daughter already claimed this quilt! It is sure to be one you will enjoy making.

Love your daughter's paisley bear! It's a nice feeling when a family member claims a quilt.

Kat Scribner said...

Looks great, Sharon. This one is on my immediate to-do list, as soon as I get some of my monthly on-going projects together. I've already collected a variety of browns.

I can see why she has claimed it. It is beautiful.

Great job! It's good to know where a quilt is going before it's finished. Kind of like knowing the baby's gender before its born.
