More Teddy Bear Quilts

I have mentioned here before that our guild supports the Christmas Cheer Fund by making small quilts for teddy bears or stuffed animals.  I have been busy this past week making such quilts.  When I was in Duluth Minnesota at the Minnesota quilt show we also visited quilt shops in town and I found some really neat panels.  These panels had two panels per cut and they were all on sale.  Some of them were only $3, so I think I got a real bargain.

I made 3 of these with the yellow border and then ran out of the yellow so I added blue to the next one.

I bought 2 of these panels and ended up with 4 small quilts by adding borders to them.

I bought one of these panels so I still have one more to make of this design.  So that is 5 in the past week that I finished.

Last spring I made a few more but forgot to post them.  I found this pattern at the Fat Quarter Shop and thought it would make a good teddy bear quilt, so I made two of them.  The pattern doesn't call for borders but that made it a little bigger and perfect for a Teddy Bear.

A multi coloured one,

And a pink one.

This is a quilt that I have made before a few times.  It is really easy just half square triangles.

Our possibilities group thought we would try something new and we found and article in the magazine The Canadian Quilter that looked interesting.

It was called "Snip, Rip, Drop, Pass".  We all brought a metre of fabric and followed directions until we had a 5 inch square left.  We were to make a small quilt out of the fabric that we received and we could add a few pieces if we had to.

This was my quilt.  I found the pattern at the Fat Quarter shop free patterns, called Charm Pack Cherry
