It is always exciting to have a finish! I really enjoyed quilting along with Lorna over at SewFeshQuilts on the MOD Bear Paw! Even though this quilt was time consuming with all the little pieces, the finish was so worth it!
I love how the Mama Bear is padding along through the grid of baby bear paws!
One of my favorite stories that I read my 3 girls when they were little was this book, Can't You Sleep Little Bear by Martin Waddell.
It goes perfectly with this quilt as I imagine this Mama Bear padding into Little Bear's room because Little Bear couldn't get to sleep. The illustrations in this book are beautifully done by Barbara Firth.
Mama Bear is so patient with Little Bear and teaches Little Bear that he does not need to be afraid of the dark.
The backing is a cute cross print in 2 different shades of pink.
I straight lined quilted around each baby paw and diagonally across the blocks. On Mama Bear, I FMQ stipples to give her texture. The binding is in a slightly darker shade of gray than the Kona silver I used in the sashing.
This quilt finishes at 39" x 47".
It is ready for the baby shower (baby due after Christmas) and of coarse, I needed to find a copy of this book to go along with the quilt!
Thanks Lorna for this fun project! Linking up with Lorna's Let's Bee Social.
Another thing coming to an end is the 2016 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. October was the final month and the color is Yellowish Oranges.
Here is my final finished block.
I will now be playing with the layout of all my blocks.
Here are all my other blocks (not in any particular order)
and whether or not I will add a scrappy border. What do you think?
I will be linking up to SoScrappy tomorrow.
