The Berenstain Bear Quilt

Did I ever tell you about the quilt I made for my then 2 year old granddaughter last Christmas? I think maybe I forgot to do so.

The quilt was made using a charm pack. I alternated the charm squares with some pink print from the collection. I used the same print for the border. I sewed giant turquoise rick rack along the seam lines. I used another fabric from the collection for the backing:

The fabrics made charming little pictures all over the quilt top. Brother and Sister Bear:

As you may recall, Mama always wore a dress made of turquoise polka dot fabric, so that is what I used for the binding. The binding is the normal narrow width on the front…

… but it is wider on the back. I thought that would be more like a “blankie” for my little granddaughter.

I had some of the backing fabric left, so I quilted it and made a little travel duffel bag to store the quilt and to use for necessities when visiting Grandma! Note the turquoise polka dot zipper pull:

All this was a lot of fun to make!
