Not Bearly There

I found a really neat pattern in Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts Spring 2011 magazine called Bearly There.  The pattern used bear fabric therefore the name for the quilt.  I had some neat Snowman fabric that I thought would be great with this pattern.  I fussy cut the snowmen for the center squares of the blocks and used beige and blue for the rest of the squares.  

The fabric is Snow Flurries from Clothworks.
I used the same fabric for the outer border.
This quilt is for a friend who still plays hockey
and he is in his 70's.
Some of the snowmen are skating so I 
thought it was quite appropriate for him.

I also finished another donation quilt.  This is made from scraps from a layer cake twister quilt that I made a few years ago for my grandson.

I got this pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Company.
On the video she doesn't use sashing and cornerstones but I learned a new technique 
about adding sashing strips and now I am loving 
making them.
