The two Bjorn Bear Baby Quilts are done. The identical twin boys were born on Saturday, 2/15 and are still in the hospital.
Excuse the lighting--it is a gray day, but I made it outside when it wasn't raining. This one has a light green background. I made most of the bears identical, but there is different bear in each quilt.
Their finished size 44 x 56 inches after washing. I quilted them with my wavy stitch on a 2.5 inch grid.
The backings are Sew Lush from Joann's--so soft! These quilts are the first time I opted to not use any batting and I think they came out great.
The bears, deer, and foxes will be perfect colors and for the nursery theme!
I sewed this top together today! The pattern is called Sunnyside designed by Myra Barnes of Busy Hands Quilts http://busyhandsquilts.blogspot.com. I decided to make it 48 inches square before quilting and washing. I will pick up a gray minky backing and quilt this one on the diagonals with the wavy stitch.
Next up is a baby sized Fresh As A Daisy Quilt. The lavender is the background, white petals, and the pink for the flower centers. I may also us Lori Holt's Spelling Bee to make block letters to spell the baby's name. When this one is done, I am going to take a break from baby quilts--I have one more for a June baby and two more for babies due in September, but I want to work on something else for awhile!
