    IowaStitcher

    Several years ago, I swear I saw a 9-patch square set on point and, with some embroidery for a face and proper use of color in the block, it came out looking like a teddy bear. Sounds simple but for the life of me, I can't find the source nor can I figure out how to set up a block to look like this. With so many creative people out there, maybe one of you has seen this or has an idea for accomplishing it.
    Thank you so much.

    Did you see a picture online or in magazine? On a quilt board or blog or shop site? Any detail will help to find the block pattern.
    Got fabric?

    I did a 9 patch in the shape of the gingerbread boy for a pot holder. It is done on point. I did the brown blocks to form a solid X shape. The "head" is one of the corner blocks that would be white but instead it is brown also with 3 corners of white sewn on like a snowball block. The arms and legs get white rick rack for the icing and the tummy gets 3 small dark buttons for the raisins. The head gets 2 small black buttons for the eyes and the mouth is embroidered on.
    white brown brown (with 3 corners)head/point
    brown brown brown
    white brown white
    If you google 9 patch gingerbread boy block you might find it. Good luck.

    Here're links to the gingerbread man block:

    Either could be adjusted to a teddy bear, I think....
