The bear essentials

What do you do when you have the day off and it's windy, rainy and downright nasty outside?

Sew in your PJ's day!

I just got this beautiful batik on sale from Hancocks of Paducah - love that place.

So decided to play with that today so cut a square and sewed strips around it.


Then fussy cut triangles to go around that so the Bears wouldn't be upside down or sideways.

No undignified bear positions in my quilt.


Course that leaves holes all over my fabric but, oh well.


The sides will go like this.
Now what?

Let's make some birch, or actually bears like beech nuts so let's call them beech trees.


This is where I'm at right now. I have no idea where I'm going with this.

Just one of those figure it out as you go projects.

Hopefully I will have the finish for you next week so stay tuned ;-)



  1. I can see why you were intrigued by this fabric. I like where you are going with it.

  2. I love this fabric and LOVE what you are doing with it. I wait patiently to see it completed while I shuffle off to the H of P website!

  3. I can't bear it, it is so cool!
