Very pretty quilts. The blue & yellow looks like Moda Summer Breeze line, that I've already made two quilts from and enough fabric for a third.

I ran across this link the other day: http://karensquiltscrowscardinals.bl...ng-part-v.html

She shows swirls, echo quilting, etc. Don't know your level of FMQ, but it might give you a jump start. Might be cute to put bear prints in a couple places.

Great tops! I would SITD on the pieced blocks, outline the silhouettes, and do a bear quilted into the centers of the pieced blocks. I might quilt pine tree outlines in the big border.

Those are fine work. For the bears, I think I would do trees or bear paws (either the pattern or the shape of actual footprints) in the large squares, leave the bears and trees to pop out and meander the rest.

For the blue and yellow, I think some form of feathers and flowers, with the feathers following the diamond shape around the inner appliqued flowers. I'd probably do a fine on the border.

I am unsure about the bright yellow one.
