This is my second son's quilt. It is made of fabrics with
teddy bears and sailboats on them. I found the fabrics on sale at Walmart for $1
per yard! I made the entire quilt for about $12, and most of that is the cost of
batting. I used a red fabric with stars on it for an accent, so I decided to use
only star blocks. I just love this quilt. The white fabric with sailboats had a
large border print of the sailing teddy bears. They cut up into three 12-1/2
inch blocks – the perfect size. I machine quilted the star blocks, but I thought
it would be fun to quilt the large teddy bears by hand. I don't have time to
hand quilt an entire blanket, but some things just have to be done. The bears
really stand out this way. I wanted this quilt to be used by my son for many
years, so I chose the red, white, and blue colors. I also was glad to find some
teddy bears that aren't too babyish looking. Jackie loves this quilt. He and his
sisters bring it downstairs occasionally to have a campout in the living room.
They each bring a pillow, but they all fit under the one quilt. Sometimes they
like to put the quilt upside-down and use the polka-dot backing for the top. I'm
glad they like it either way!
