Little red bear is so happy he can't stand still; he has to do a handstand! Keeping him company on this wee small quilt is his favorite climbing tree, his warm playhouse, and his best kite. Each picture has a background and is centered on a large block. The pattern uses raw edge applique which frays when washed. This results in a rustic, folk look to the quilt. The blocks are quilted at the same time the appliques are sewn so when the quilt top is sewn the whole quilt is done except for the binding. The finished size is 35x40 inches (89x 102 cm), perfect to cuddle a baby or lay on the floor for playtime. Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 35x40 inches (89x 102 cm)

Supplies Needed

  • thread
  • 4 fat quarters (18x21 inch pieces, 45x53cm) in different colors for 4 large backgrounds
  • 1 and 3/8 yard ( 127cm) fabric for backing which will also be used as the binding

I love designing and making quilts, especially folk and story quilts. All my patterns are easy to follow with step by step directions and photos. Every pattern begins with a quilt created and sewn on my table top machine. I want everyone who tries one of my patterns to enjoy the experience of quilting and the satisfaction of a finished project.
