Quilt With Us

Quilt Show is coming up fast - April 25, so I have to get all the remaining entry details taken care of - labels, clear plastic bags for delivery, etc.

Here is my last entry this time:  It is a large wall-hanging and I call it "Cranberry Bear." I completed the applique more than a year ago, then hit a brick wall when it came to finishing it off!  It is all batik, so hand-quilting was out.  I didn't want to send the quilting to the LAQ, but I was also hesitant to try it myself.  My DH's Christmas present this year, in the form of a larger sewing table, helped me whip up the courage to machine quilt it myself.  About 15 thread color changes, and here it is:

And the close-up to show the stitching.

Barbara, I've always wanted to see a large bear in person, but not too close.  DS lives in the arctic village of Kaktovik, Alaska, and has seen several polar bears near there.  I've been turning over the idea of creating a polar bear, but there is so much WHITE to deal with!

What a stunning bear! Great job!

We've lived in here for thirty years and I saw my first bear in September. A grizzly--amazing! It was not in town, although from time to time a black bear is spotted in a tree.
