I just love the Elizabeth Hartman critter patterns. I bought a bunch of them last year, and so far have completed Dwight the Dear and Hazel the Hedgehog quilts. I love them – they are not quick to do! – but I love them.
Bjorn the Bear was one of the patterns I bought, and with just the right pack of Kona fat quarters in my stash I set off to make some bears. I think I started piecing back in the spring and finished the top at my quilt retreat in June.
Here was the finished quilt top at the retreat:
And here is the finished quilt post quilting. I just did a simple allover design in a light pink thread as I hope this quilt will be well used:
some close ups:
love the pink girl with the glasses – I’m calling her Becky the Bear:
and some more photos on the bed:
It was a pretty day outside for photos:
and Maggie was happy to help:
My version of Bjorn the Bear (with Becky!) is going to a very special little girl who will be making her arrival in October. I hope mom, dad, and new baby girl love all the bears!
This was on my Q3’18 FAL list, so I’ll be linking up at the end of the quarter.
