Blogger's Quilt Festival: The Bear on the Wall

In my original post, I made a joke about keeping a bear on the wall, so I thought I would take some pictures of our old friend in his "natural habitat."

I think he is settling in nicely.

Final stats:
This bear block was designed by Juliet at  Tartankiwi. This is the 30" version.
The quilt finishes at 36" x 36"
It was quilted using one of the zig-zag utility stitches on my Janome with Aurifil 5012.
I used 3 different Anna Maria Horner lines (Pretty Potent, Loulouthi and Innocent Crush). There's also Denyse Schmidt, Art Gallery, Michael Miller and Kaffe Fassett because sometimes more really IS better.

Linking up with the Blogger's Quilt Festival, small quilt division.


  1. I LOVE him. I want one to come live on my wall!

  2. May I come over, and drink coffee in front of the bear?! He's a little scary and a lot cute all at the same time. I love him!

    1. Sure! I find myself watching him all the time, too.....just to see if he'll lumber right off the wall.

  3. You did a fabulous job on this wonderful pattern by Juliet!

  4. So cute! I've been wanting to make a bear quilt since I first saw him on instagram, and I love your version :)

  5. This is so wonderful and vibrant! Looks great on your wall.

  6. Love this bear! He is so fun and colorful and looks perfect residing on your wall!
