Bear Hugs

The third baby quilt for our soon-to-arrive grandson might be my favorite! 

The background on the front is off-white cottons; the blue stars are flannel with a cotton surround that matches the inner border and binding; the bears are all Minkee with black cotton noses and red cotton hearts; the outer brown border is also Minkee.

The bears are adorable! The mouth detail is embroidered with pearl cotton as are the black (hard to see) eyes. I must say that while making this, I didn't think the bears were adorable! Each bear has a number of pieces to be appliquéd and I sat with a vacuum by my side for all of the fuzzy pieces!

The back is a creamy white Minkee that matches the bears' paws, ears, and faces.

This approximately 48" X 48" quilt has polyester batting. I machine quilted this in straight lines across the quilt - I wanted to be sure the quilt stayed very soft.


  1. I'd never thought of appliqueing with Minkee. I would think it would be pretty hard to do. Cute!

  2. This quilt is so sweet, and I can tell from here that it is very cuddly! Your new grandchild will love it!
