Here is the big reveal of the B is for Bear quilt I've been working on for the past few weeks!
This is my Island Batik Ambassador challenge quilt for the month of September.
This month's theme is Child's Play. The parameters of this project were to create a juvenile inspired quilt 45" x 60" or larger featuring the Accuquilt BOB (Block on Board) die that was included in our Island Batik Ambassador box #2. Disclaimer: The items used to create this quilt were given to me by Island Batik and industry partners at no cost to me.
The Accuquilt BOB die I received was the Bear's Paw block.
I used Island Batik's Clockworks fabric collection for the majority of this quilt.
Aren't the colors and patterns fabulous?
Here's a close-up of one of the Bear's Paw blocks I made. I sewed a total of eight Bear's Paw blocks for my quilt.
I designed this cute teddy bear face in EQ8 and made one block for the center of the quilt.
I also made this "B is for Bear" border. It fun to applique letters onto a quilt!
I used Hobbs Heirloom Natural Cotton Batting with Scrim for this quilt.
This photo shows both of the gorgeous Aurifil threads I received in box #2. I used the creamy colored thread on the left for the quilting on this project.
I did a simple loopy meander over most of the quilt. You can see it well in this folded quilt photo.
I quilted a little swirly inside the "a" and the "o". You can also see here the bright blue Aurifil thread I used to blanket stitch around the letters. Isn't it groovy?
Amazing Island Batik fabrics!
I used two of the brown fabrics from the Clockworks collection for the binding. They blend well together and using two different fabrics gives the binding some interest.
It is Fall, even though it was about 90 bazillion degrees out with the sun blaring down when I took these photos, so I did a traditional pumpkin on my front steps pic. You can pretend it's a nice crisp, cool, Autumn day.
