Bears! So many cute bears!

Make a cuddly bear quilt in your favorite colors!

The pattern includes templates for THIRTEEN different bears - all with their own unique personalities.

You Get. . .

  • A digital pattern delivered by email. (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
  • Full sized applique patterns so there’s no enlarging needed
  • Reversed and exploded appliqué patterns to print directly onto freezer paper or fusible adhesive. No tracing! 
  • Detailed instructions and lots of step by step photos – you’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing it right.
  • Detailed cutting instructions for crib, nap and twin sized quilts.
  • Instructions for assembling the quilt – layering, basting, quilting and binding – with links to videos for all of them - including links to Quilt As You Go videos.
  • Links to videos teaching you all the skills you’ll need to complete the project. It’s a workshop disguised as a pattern!

    Size

    The blocks finish at 10" square. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the following sizes. . .

    • crib (50" square)
    • napping (50" x 60") - this is my favorite size for on the couch
    • twin (70" x 90")

      Difficulty

      I designed this quilt to teach appliqué – so it’s great for beginners, and a fun and relaxing project for more experienced stitchers. If you can use your sewing machine, you have the skills you need to make this cute and cuddly bear quilt.

      I used appliqué with fusible adhesive and Quilt As You Go to make a super easy quilt - almost all done on the machine. The pattern also includes links to videos teaching needle turn appliqué and machine appliqué with freezer paper, in case you prefer those methods.

      What You Need+-

      You'll need. . . 

       

      For the sample blocks I made I used the Rainbow Sherbet fabric bundle for the background blocks and Warm Neutrals fat quarter bundles for the bears.

      Crib Size (50" square)

      • 3 yards of a variety of background fabrics
      • assorted prints in bear colors (get at least 7 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)
      • 2 1/2 yards fabric for the quilt back (or 1 1/2 yards Cuddle Fleece)
      • 1/2 yard binding fabric

      Napping Size (50" x 60")

      • 3 1/3 yards of a variety of background fabrics
      • assorted prints in bear colors (get at least 8 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)
      • 4 yards fabric for the quilt back (or 2 yards Cuddle Fleece)
      • 1/2 yard binding fabric

      Twin Size (70" x 90")

      • 7 yards of a variety of background fabrics
      • assorted prints in bear colors (get at least 16 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)
      • 5 yards fabric for the quilt back (or 4 yards Cuddle Fleece)
      • 5/8 yard binding fabric

      Other Materials

      • batting (I love Warm & Natural 100% cotton batting)
      • fusible adhesive (if using my favorite appliqué with fusible adhesive technique) - I recommend Lite for quilts and Featherlite for clothing. You'll need one sheet for each bear.

      You might also want. . .

      • freezer paper (if you choose the machine appliqué with freezer paper technique) – either a roll from the grocery store, or this printable freezer paper

      Bear Applique Quilt

      I just finished making this bear quilt. I followed the directions, and made a 4 by 3 grid. I used cherrywood fabrics and the quilt is so soft. I used steam a seam 2 and ordered 8 by 11 1/2 sheets on Amazon.
      I would definitely make this again. Thanks for the inspiration and pattern.
