    This was a great start for me. Straight line sewing, fun fabric. I have a few family members "claiming" this. Meant for 6 month old grandbaby boy. Have ordered more tops and back quilt. The striped fabric was enough for a few .. hope you all like it !

    Saw the fabric in a this month quilt magazine. picked up fabric from the Eric Carl museum. I don't drive. Wonderful to get it in the mail !

    What a fun quilt. Makes a person smile when they look at it. Reminds me of when I would read to my children. :) :)

    That is too darling! Can't you just see that sweet grandbaby boy retelling the story to himself over and over using the pictures on his quilt? Precious.

    Having taught little kids in the past, I can speak from experience that "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" is always a hit and I think it's in large
    part because of the wonderful illustrations of Eric Carle!

    Your quilt came out great!
    I just love it!

    this is so super cute. I remember my mom reading me this book when I was younger! Now I read it to my kids.

    Can't wait to see your caterpillar quilt!

    It's very cute, I can see why several family members are trying to claim it for their own!

    Delightful quilt. Love the borders and backing. This quilt really brought me back "a few years." When I taught first grade, the children always wrote their own little Brown Bear stories. I loved their drawings. Thanks for the memories. :lol:

    that is great! I made a Brown Bear quilt last year - I really like the way you did this and the backing fabric is WONDERFUL!
