Bjorn Bear Quilt

 I've been sewing again (or still). 
 I bought a FQB of a group of crossweave fabrics a few months ago.  
My intent was to make the Elizabeth Hartman pattern Bjorn Bear. 
 I decided to cut it out to take to NC but as you all know, that didn't go according to plan. 
 Also, the pattern was for 12 or 20 bear faces, and of course the bundle was 16 and 
I bought the background for the 12 bears. 
 I cut originally cut out the bear faces but left the borders and sashing. 
  I cut the strips they called for as they were length of fabric but I had not subcut them into their respective lengths since I was not sure of the length and width of the quilt since I was changing things.  As it turns out I ended up piecing one 12" sashing piece
 but otherwise I got everything out of what I had bought.  

These are some of the cute faces.

This one got cute glasses!

Here it is the top all assembled.
  I used a light blue Grunge for the background.

I had some left over bear Minky from the first bear quilt I made but unfortunately not enough.
Then I remembered that I made a duplicate quilt for my SIL and maybe she had some left over fabric.
Well, luckily she did!
I was able to use a piece to add to my 2 yard piece that made it wide enough!!
YAY for using fabric from my stash too!!

Just in case you are interested, I am healing well.  
There is a video visit with my oncologist (who I have not met yet) on April 14.
Still waiting for my oncotype score.
No treatment plan until I meet with the oncologist.

Thanks for stopping in.
I would love to hear from you if you are enjoying my blog.
Pop over to the comments and say HI and introduce yourself if I don't know you already.

The Panda bear quilt that I made for my great-granddaughter was also by Eliz Hartmann. She does a great job with writing. I just made a pillow that was included in the quilt pattern so I will be sending that to my granddaughter. She was jealous when her daughter got the little quilt so how could I not make another one!! Love your bears!
