Quilt #8 - Teddy Bear 9-Patch

This was a quilt I made for a co-worker back in 2008.  The fabrics were the cutest flannels and so incredibly soft!  I loved the bears, stripe and the starts/hearts on the fabric on the back.  They all worked really well together.  The only fabric I probably would have changed is the gingham fabric.  This was incredibly stretchy and very difficult to work with.  It looked great in the quilt, but it was a bear (pun intended) to work with.


I don't have photos of this quilt in-progress, but it was pretty simple with 9-patches and solid blocks.


This was one of the first quilts I quilted on my own sewing machine.  Since I was still learning, I decided to just do simple, straight diagonal stitch across the 9-patches and left the solid blocks alone.


The binding I chose for this quilt was a dark green fabric.  The green seemed to offset the bright yellows and reds in the quilt nicely.


Here's a close-up of one of the corners.


And quilting you can see on the back.


Happy Crafting!
