Bjorn Bear Quilt

Kim made this super sweet Bjorn Bear quilt, pattern by Elizabeth Hartman, for the arrival of a new grandchild in California.  I really liked her thinking on this one as she said California's state animal is the bear so it only made sense she pick a bear out of all the cute animal patterns on the market these days!   The fabrics are all from Road 17N in Winkler, MB.   Kim just called and they put together this great grouping of fabrics in Kim's colour palette. 

Check out this backing!  It is Sherpa Cuddle in an oatmeal colour.  It is thick and cozy and easy to quilt on the longarm.

I picked Popcorn for the pantograph, a light blue/teal So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

Had to take the bears out into the woods for a photo shoot now that the snow is all gone, ground has dried and weather warming up.

Kim also made 2 pillows that I quilted for her as well.  The bears in glasses are so cute!


  1. This is just adorable! The light blue background looks so hug-able! It's been on my to-make list for quite some time, this makes me want to move it up the priority list. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Why have I not seen this bear pattern from Elizabeth Hartman? I love it! Love your version...gotta track down this pattern.

  3. That is so pretty, beary beary good!

  4. " If you go down to the woods today??", Love the matching pillowcases, this will be a quilt that will have love for years.

  5. That's just so cute. I love that it's a totally different idea for a baby quilt.
