My day on the Jaftex 85th Anniversary Blog Hop

Posted on: September 21st, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Jaftex, a family run textile business, is Celebrating a Milestone!  Happy 85th Anniversary, Jaftex!

Jaftex is the parent company for Blank Quilting, Studioe Fabrics, and Henry Glass Fabrics. In celebration of this milestone event, I was invited to participate in this exciting blog hop. This blog hop is packed full of fabulous giveaways from each of the participants, so be sure to check out the JAFTEX page tab under my blog header for the full schedule, and follow along to see what everyone has created!

To help us celebrate, I’ve invited the Teddy Bears….

I received a fat quarter bundle of Fusion Illusion from Blank Quilting for my project. It took me quite a while to figure out what I wanted to make. Those fabrics finally whispered something about wanting to become Teddy Bears. But the whole time I was working on those blocks, all I could think about was Gummy Bears! Those bright, vibrant prints are so yummy!

Just look at the fun texture of the Fusion Illusion. Those rich, swirly prints remind me of the good times spent finger painting back in Kindergarten class. And it gives the illusion of cuddly, fluffy fur on those bears!

Searching through (my stash), I found the perfect background fabric. It is Crystal Palace by Whimsies & Wishes for Studioe Fabrics. This subtle text print was just what those bright bears needed. And the winter words helped keep me cool in the July heat as I pieced and pressed.

For the quilting, I used my organic wavy lines with my walking foot. Always a fun and fast finish, and a pleasure to perform. Those of you who are regulars around here have seen this method used on many of my quilts. But for anyone visiting for the first time today, you may be interested in watching this video showing how I quilt my wavy lines.

The binding is Folio by Henry Glass Fabrics. Another piece found in . I used my most familiar binding method to sew the binding first to the back and then topstitched from the front of the quilt. It was great to be able to include fabrics from all three of the Jaftex companies in this project. Making this finish all that much more special!

Teddy Bears was the 47th use of my 100 labels ordered from Ikaprint.

Teddy Bears finished at approximately 40″ x 40″ using 10″ finished size bear blocks. And this is NOT paper pieced. If you are interested in making your own version of the Teddy Bears quilt, please click here to purchase the pattern.

Sending out a great big THANK YOU! to Linda Lum DeBono for all her hard work in organizing this blog hop and for offering us the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful celebration.

  12. ledamewood says:

    I always know I'll use fabric in a quilt, but your bear quilt is so special I would make it.

  13. I would definitely make those adorable teddy bears!

  14. Cut&Alter says:

    Love these teddy bears. I can now see the piecing that goes into these in a different light having started making my DGC blocks! Will have to wait for someone I know to have a baby!!

  15. Pretty bundle! I think I would make a quilt that would look like a stained glass art piece. The bundle reminds me of stained glass pieces in a heritage home.

  17. Karen says:

    It would be great to win these wonderful fabric – I would sure make this fun teddy bear quilt!

  36. Beautiful! The fabric is indeed perfect for your bears' fur. What a clever idea to use it for this animal. You are so talented with animals. 🙂 Thank you for the giveaway and have a great day!

  37. Me again… I didn't even answered the question for the giveaway… I think this fabric would be perfect for anything relating to nature. I would surely use it for flowers, leaves, butterflies and birds.

  38. Unknown says:

    Those bears are adorable, but I would have to use the fabric for a jewel box quilt. I've always wanted to make one, and those colours would be perfect!

  39. Sarah says:

    I would use it in a Spinning Star quilt I'm planning right now. I would use the bear pattern too, for making shower gift quilts! I love it!

    You make the cutest quilts Lorna. I just love them. I would have to make some gummy bears for sure with that pretty fabric line with all the delicious colors. Thank you for a chance at winning.

  69. Lorna the teddy bears are just darling! Since I don't have any young children and my grandson already has plenty of quilts from me, I would use the fabric for something else if I was lucky enough to win. But I would make the teddy bears quilt just in case I was lucky enough to have another grandchild one day! Heck I might even make the teddy bears for me they are so cute!!!

  70. Anonymous says:

    I would use some of the fabric for a teddy bear quilt, and some for a rainbow quilt.senstrings (at) yahoo (dot) com

    Your bear pattern is another winner. Since I don't have any little ones to make a quilt for at this point, I'd use the fabrics for something else. Perhaps a lap quilt for a friend. Not sure which pattern yet. Love all the closeup photos so you can see the design in these great fabrics.

  89. gab says:

    A teddy bear quilt likes yours for sure!

  90. You're right – the fabric gives the illusion of fur so it would have to be an animal of some sort. The teddy bears are adorable!

  91. I love the teddy bears. You continue to surprise and impress me. Such creativity to come up with these wonderful animals. I would definitely make teddy bears if I won.

  92. MoeWest says:

  123. This project is just so cute, but honestly, if I were to win that bundle I would consider using it for your Wow-E pattern that I got a few months back. It's just sitting there, waiting for the right fabric to come along. Also I really love that background fabric you chose. It's gorgeous.

  124. Great pattern Lorna, I see some gummy bears too! Fabulous fabric, but if I won I would probably not use it for your bears…unless I made a crib size and donated it. I have no babies in the family! I would use some of the fabric in my (as yet unsewn, but fabric collected) Lake quilt, and use the rest in a bright and happy summer quilt!

  125. Joyce Carter says:

    Lorna, you always come up with the cutest animal patterns and this quilt is just way too cute. If I were lucky enough to win, I would love to make the bear quilt. I love Teddy Bears and this would go so well with all my others. Thank you so much.

Thanks for a chance to win this great collection.

  140. Esther G says:

    I definitely see the gummy bears. I think I'd have to make this same quilt, it's so cute!
