Bear and Bees baby quilt finish
Every one of these prints were purchased from Canadian National Fabric. The background is Ditsy Floral in Turquoise from the Theodore & Izzy collection by Andrea Turk from Cinnamon Joe Studio for Camelot Fabrics. The yellow in the bees, their blue wings, the bear’s ear, nose and chest, and the honey pot were made from yellow, teal, pink and light grey Leaf Vine fabrics from the Bear Essentials 2 collection by P&B Textiles. The bear is made from White Mandorla from the Design Studio collection for Camelot Fabrics.
The green grass is 63 Kiwi from the Juice collection by Ginger Lily Studio for African Sky. The backing is Theodore the Bear, also from the Theodore & Izzy collection and the binding is Black Gingham from the Country Touch collection by Daphne B. for Wilmington Prints.
Those cute bears in the backing are simply adorable. And so are the bees. This backing fabric was my inspiration for the Bear and Bees design. The Black Gingham sure makes for a smart looking binding. But it causes your eyes go all bugged out when you are looking at it off the bolt. Working with the strips once they were cut was much easier to take! I used the Rita of Red Pepper Quilts binding method again. And am pretty happy with how it turned out.
Here you can see that I used the organic wavy line quilting, so I could make my way around those appliqued letters on the honey pot. I just used plain white Gütermann thread for the whole works. Except the black applique on the HONEY.

I love this quilt, it's a really fab and fun design. :0) xx
That is adorable! You've got me thinking about black gingham I really like the look for the binding but would never have considered it, thanks.
Fantastic, love it was the backing fabric that prompted the front! I'm always amazed EQ7 designs look so like the finished item so many times! Congrats on another gorgeous finish
Another awesomely, cute quilt. Thanks so much for sharing all the information with us.
I really like the gingham binding, Lorna! What a fantastic finish, and I agree that it is very sweet and gender neutral. 🙂
Lorna, your quilt is as cute as can be. I love that backing!
Such a cute quilt
Last week, I was in a (boring) meeting, doodling a pattern for a baby boy friend of mine. I was trying to merge together some ideas I found on the net. She likes \”cutie\” things but I also wanted a modern look. And then, it hit me in the face: this site from that girl in Ontario is exactly what you are looking for. So I send to her the link to your pattern gallery, and ask her to choose something (I suggest Foxes & friends). She replied to me: \”how do I choose, I love everything. You know me so well\”. So she finally decide on the \”foxes & friends\”. So now I have a pattern to buy (first time I buy a pattern online) and a project for my summer holidays. So thanks for the design.
Love your quilt! You did a fabulous job with every step. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful creative day!
Great bear quitl!
Very cute, Lorna. Love the binding – what a smart choice.
So very cute!!! Another awesome pattern. Great backing fabric.
Oh it's turned out so well! It does look just like your drawing and it's beautiful! What a treat for a little one 🙂
Your bear is just so cute and the binding is the perfect choice.
It's another winner, Lorna! I especially love the backing fabric – it's just too adorable. But I love all the prints, really, I'm so impressed with your using a computer – I keep trying but I always go back to the darn pencil and paper – I think I'm technologically challenged…Anyway, your creativity knows no bounds, girl.
Fantastic! I really like the way this turned out Lorna! 🙂
Absolutely gorgeous! What a great design 🙂
This is super cute! I especially love the texture the print gives the bear fur.
This is just adorable!
You make the most adorable quilts, Lorna. 😀 I'm so in love with this fun guy. Absolutely gender neutral – I first thought it'd be a perfect quilt for a niece. That backing fabric is precious.
It's ADORABLE Lorna! And it is gender neutral! Bravo!
