Little Bear Baby Quilt Quilt with Original Pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to use a sewing machine and some of the fancier stitches. Preferable, you would also have knowledge of fusible applique and cutting out fabrics using rotary cutting tools. If not, you can still learn by referring to quilting books that teach these methods.

Pattern Description:

After making my first baby quilt design, I was inspired to try some more of the applique designs. This time, I was attracted to those cute and cuddly bears in the quilting program. Babies love to cuddle plush toy bears and whatever else they can get those cute little hands onso why not make a little bear and oops.... he's dropped his flower.

My challenge this time, was to only use fabrics from my stashand in that process, I changed my fabric choices several times, as I discovered which ones would have enough yardage for each requirement.

This PDF pattern has colored illustrations, clear instructions, and full-size templates for the applique pieces that have already been reversed for the fusible applique process. Use my fabric choices as your guide and have fun with this project.

If you wish, you may try one of my free applique patterns to see if the method is one you would like to make.

Sewing began my 'adventure with fabric' in seventh grade.
Fast forward about three decades, and it was machine applique that won my attention. Presently, I like to blend applique with scrap ...
