Quilt #6: Bjorn Bear

I am so excited about my final quilt for 2016.  My oldest nephew is expecting his first child in 2017 – a perfect reason to make a Bjorn Bear quilt. 5and6-3I went with a plain yellow back.  I was tempted to make one more bear for the back, but holiday crunch time just didn’t allow for it.5and6-4Elizabeth Hartman, the pattern designer, does an amazing job of using layers of diagonal seams to create these adorable bears.  The applique hipster glasses were fun since my nephew wears glasses.  I did an all over quilting design of meandering blocks.5and6-85and6-95and6-10I hope the little guy enjoys it!
