    I have spent several days getting some WIP completed. The Teddy Bear quilt is the only one completely done! But I am happy. It is for my daughter's friend... 24 seems so young to be having a baby these days, but I am sure she is ready for motherhood.

    It may even make it to Alberta before the baby is born!



    Doesn't it always happen? Gus will sit on ANYTHING I lay on the floor...

    Looks good. Was that a panel or did you applique it? Either way you did a good job. I'm sure that baby and Mom will really appreciate it.

    I love the quilt, but love even more that Gus blessed it. Ozzy must bless everything here as well! Its in their nature.

    That's really cute!
    Gus just wants to make sure his stamp of approval is on it before it goes to it's new home.

    It is appliqued. If you look closely you can see the same little bear in the green fabric (Boyds Bear I think). I traced the little bear and then enlarged it to get the bigger one. I enjoyed doing this one, but as the British will say "it is a one-off", I have a short attention span!

    I made a teddy bear quilt from a pattern similar to that when my daughter was born, you are very talented and do such nice work.

    That is very nice. One of these days I'm going to have to make a baby quilt. I want to, but never can make up my mind or find something I want to make.

    Gus is just trying it on for size. My dog does the same thing. If I lay a quilt in progress on the floor or even drap it on a couch it only takes about 5 minutes before she plants herself right in the middle of it. (keeping in mind that she is a 70 pound black Labrador Retriever!)

    Regardless, I love your teddy bear quilt. I haven't tried applique yet so admire anyones who does it well! Lucky baby! :lol:

    This quilt is adorable & kudos to the quilter behind it! Your technique look amazing. I haven't done applique yet either but this makes it look too easy to not. Please keep us posted about its intended receiver. :)
