Big Bear Little Bear

Most of the Project Linus Big Bear Little Bear book-blanket challenge quilt top is pieced. I still have borders to add, but that will be quick. The blues in the quiltcoordinate amazingly well with the book.
I did an incredible job (if I do say so myself) of salvaging every last scrap of my bear fabric. I had less than a half yard to begin with. To make it go further, I used pieces of it in the small 9-patches, with mini-cameos in some of the centers.

It's very crisp and sweet. It reminds me of the colors of Santorini, but it is also very Arctic, ice and water and sky-like. I think it is playful enough too that a small child will appreciate it. Now, to get it completed by early October.

I love this quilt! It's a great Project Linus idea, too. Maybe I'll suggest the book/quilt link to my guild. What fun!
