Teddy Bear Baby Quilt - Part 1

Sometimes I will be inspired to make a quilt from just one fat quarter of fabric and this is what happened here.

 This is the FQ  and the teddy bear drawing I did for the appliqued center block.


I used Bondaweb to build up my design.....

... then machine appliqued the shapes in place.


I kept the border of the main fabric wide so as not to loose the pretty pattern.

Getting bigger......

I made these blocks for the next round but decided that it didn't look right and I didn't like them.
Onto plan B....

Plain border ?   Nah  didn't like that either.


Finally decided on a stripey border which I think looks nice.



Couldn't resist putting some feathersin the beige border.


To my disgust, after I finished the quilting, I realised  I had nothing suitable for making the binding, which I need to cut on the bias.
So at this point I will leave it here until part 2.   I need to get to the fabric shop pronto.
Hope you come back to see the finished quilt.
Enjoy your day
Rhianon.

VERY pretty!!! The border you decided on is perfect! Looking forward to seeing your choice of binding fabric - why, may I ask, does it need to be cut on the bias?

Connie said...

How beautiful! Your borders and quilting make such a difference! I use straight binding on quilts unless there are curves.

Thanks for sharing.
