I thought I would be finished with B is for Bear by now, but my husband was sick, my teenager was sick, and my 9 y.o. was so sick his illness turned into pneumonia. Now I'm sick, but keeping on as much as I can. I did complete the quilting on B is for Bear. I used the above adorable fabric for the backing, as I didn't have a piece of Island Batik that was large enough. Isn't that the cutest? Little bears with candy canes?
I used Hobbs Natural Cotton Batting with scrim for this quilt. So warm and cuddly!
I have a Juki sewing machine mounted on a frame that I haven't used for quite a while. I decided to get her cleaned and oiled for this project. Here you can see the quilt top, batting, and backing ready to roll.
I did an allover loopy meander on most of the quilt.
The featured thread is Aurifil, color #2026, a nice light cream color that blends nicely with my quilt top.
Here's a lovely close-up of some of the Island Batik Clockworks fabrics that are featured in this quilt.
Getting there! This looks like the bottom edge of the quilt. Yay!
After I finished the loopy meander, I went back and added a few details to the applique parts, like this swirly inside the "o".
I made the binding out of a couple of different brown fabrics from the Clockworks collection. Isn't this one fabby?
Here I am stitching the binding down. Getting close to a finish. Maybe this week if my family can all get healthy again.
