There’s a Bear Over There!

Posted on: December 29th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

 

There’s a Bear over there! And she’s heading this way!

The Buffalo Plaid Bear baby size quilt. Cozy and cute! 

 

 

The backing is Doe a Deer Flannel Trees in Grey. The cute little bunnies and trees are such a compliment to those pink prints from the front. All the fabrics for this quilt were recent purchases shared in this post.

The quilting was performed using a light grey thread both on top and in the bobbin.

For the binding I had intended to use the grey print used to make the bear, but instead chose the pink Grunge. I like how it makes a nice frame to the front and matches the darkest pink in the cozy flannel backing.

 

 

The “Buffalo Plaid Bear” quilt finished at 36″ x 44″
and was the 65th use of my 2nd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.

There was not much snow at the time I took these photos. It was mild, but I managed to find a large enough patch to spread this sweetie out for a couple of shots.

 

This time I place the silhouette in the upper portion of the quilt instead of walking along the bottom like I did when making the Moose version. I am looking forward to testing the Wolf versions of these Buffalo Plaid designs next!

 

Buffalo Plaid Bear
The Buffalo Plaid Bear pattern provides instructions for 4 sizes: 36″ x 44″, 44″ x 52″, 52″ x 68″ and 72″ x 88″.
