One of the best bear patterns I have ever seen. The expression on his face is so real. Love the scrappy look!
Love for sure!
This is so wonderful- great fabric choices-love the color contrasts and the way you used the prints- a super job in every way- looking forward to seeing the whole finished quilt!
Beautiful, Mary. I love your mix of fabrics. She's developing an elephant pattern that's amazing.
HawkFan Mymble Carolmarie Readerowl Charwirfs thank you all...it was a lot of fun! And there are a lot of tiny pieces...smaller than I have worked with before but using the template method of cutting fabric it made it a none issue. Truly tyring to visualize how fabrics would play together was hardest. And I saw her elephant Audrey and loved it!
He is so cute!! - and great job on fabric selection!
This is super cool!!
I agree with everything said above, True . I love the fabrics and I think fabric selection is definitely the important step here. You aced it! What a sweet bear!
Stunning - looks complicated. Paper piecing definitely on my to do list
Capetowngirl thank you...it is not as complicated as it looks as you follow the numbers. I use a template technique for cutting out pieces of fabric that really helps make it a breeze.
love the stars and mountains. This keeps getting better and better.
Readerowl thank you so much Karen! The person I am making this for makes me think of wildlife, the moon, stars and mountains so trying to use those concepts in her quilt:-)
Ah the stars and mountains are perfect!
Carolmarie thanks Carol...started the top border tonight but after working all day did not get very far:-(
Carolmarie :-). I seldom even try to quilt after commuting and working all day... I am grateful for my job but wish it left more time to quilt!!
Too cute. I agree, I want more quilting time and i only work 1.5 miles away. Hehehe Grandkids keep getting in the way.
What a lucky friend. I love this. The borders trees are awesome.
Wow- your quilt is going to compliment the artwork so well- fantastic!
You are inspiring me to try one of these, Mary! Great fabric selections! Love it!
Caribousmom thank you so much! Did you see the amazing one on FB Group? With you eye for color yours would be amazing!
The top looks wonderful- love those great corner stars!
Mymble thank you... I thought about doing some sort of pieced border for last border as well but then moved on;-)
Your Top is gorgeous. I love your bear
True well, to my eye what you did is just right- the bear is so fab and the geese the right addition- so the border seems to "finish" it without competing with the bear... I think it's great!
Mymble thank you that is what I was hoping...I got worried too much detail in border and he would be lost in it...
Oh yay! It is so so great! I know she will love it- how could anyone not?
This turned out absolutely gorgeous, you did such an amazing job on it. Your friend is going to love it!!!
Mary I love, love, love this one! So great!!!
a, really means am in ipad
Seriously, I don't think I could give this away. It's beautiful!
