Bear in the Woods

My friend and I are making Eleanor Burns' Bear in the Woods quilts and today was our first sewing session. We were hard at work cutting up our stashes:


We cut all the fabric for the log cabins and each pieced one (mine is on the left):

Our homework is to finish the other eleven. And here is my Bear in the Woods partner:


I told her I'd make her famous. She's not only beautiful and talented, but brilliant as well.

Looks like fun.......only 11 to go.....where is the bear in the woods?
Isn't it a log cabin?
Well you should get loads done with this snow :0)
Meanwhile I'm still making feathered stars..........but they're blue!

The quilt has log cabins, trees, bear paws, and flying geese. I'm making the other 11 log cabins today. Great quilting weather -- 11 inches of snow so far!

Can't wait for the feathered stars!

Oh, I am jealous! I wish I had a quilting partner - how fun! I do have a little 2.5 year old "helper" though - that has to count for something! Are you two making "matching" quilts? You are off to a good start.

Welcome to Stashquilts.

Cheers!

My mom made this quilt for my sister and I quilted it for her. It was a really pretty quilt when it was finished. Can't wait to see yours.
