    I am so happy to be done.........
    Quilted in the ditch as I did the first one (descriptions on that topic) and handquilted on the frame as I did not dare to do free motion on this quilt. Pics of the minis I already put on this board.

    At the time I went to the LQS for coordinating fabric for the attic window, the owner (approx. 70 and quilting for decades) asked after a quick look on the bears with the minis for permission to show them in the backroom where a class was taking place.
    I should have taped those ahs and ohs :oops: :oops: and after a while the teacher almost barked at me: when are you done!?

    She is organizing early February an exhibition and told me that I HAVE to put this quilt on display. I blushed all over - the first time in about 30 years...........
    It is a very small thing as quilting is not that popular over here but I am anyway quite flattered.

    I love this quilt. When you posted the minis I thought they were adorable, but the finishing just gives them that added touch!

    That is adorable, creative, and intricate! Any child who receives this quilt will spend hours looking at each different bear and the quilt on each bear's bed. The moon and stars in one corner add to the whimsical fun of the quilt. You should definitely display it!

    That is just an amazing job! I have never seen anything like it. The miniatures are wonderful by themselves but made into teddy bear quilts....absolutely wonderful!
