My friend Carol made it. She sent it home with me today - lucky me! - and I'm happy to say it fits my little bear perfectly. Thank you so much, Carol... I love it!
|This bear is the first one I'd ever made.|
The fur came from my grandmother's coat.
I've made at least 60 bears since then, but this one is special.
This bear is a special reminder of my grandmother, and now of my friend as well.
My (magical) cupboard proffered a backing for the modern baby quilt, so I loaded up the frame:
|Modern baby, almost finished.|
|"Ditching" to keep the piecing straight.|
|Skipped over an area I didn't wish to quilt...snipped the threads later.|
I hope this quilt will be washed a thousand times, so I secured the threads by back stitching...no tying off and burying threads today.
The binding is attached and all that's left is the final round of stitching. Tomorrow.
Oh, and I loaded the log cabin so there's no way I can quilt anything else until that project is done! (Did I mention that I'm easily distracted???)
Now I'm in the mood to make bears...good grief.
Try, Learn, Grow!
P.S. I just found a fun link up party for WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced, and since it's Wednesday, I'm in!
DOUBLE P.S.!!! Found a cool "I Quilt" link up with Pretty Bobbins, too.
I welcome your comments. Thanks for stopping by!
