A Bear in The Woods

(Looking for my NC row?  you can find it here!)

My local quilt store - Cary Quilting Company - have two rows available for this year's quilt shops Row by Row experience.  My daughter and I each picked up a row and I combined them to get this awesome applique.

I love, love the bear!  His eyes and his heart shaped nose are so cute.

This will be a center of a small baby sized quilt and is currently  20 '' square.   My plan is to surround this center with trees.

I learned a new (to me) feature in EQ7 that allowed me to bring in a photo into a quilt design.  This allowed me to conceptually sketch out what I am planning.

The layout of the final trees will be different but this gives you an idea.

Finishing the quilt top - which essentially means paper piecing all these trees - is my October goal.  I'll be linking up here @ Red Letter Quilts for OMG (one monthly goal).

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. This is cute, and the trees are a great idea. Good luck!

  3. Wow, that will be one adorable baby quilt!

  4. Oh! I love this!! All of your animals are adorable and I love that they will be surrounded by trees!

  5. Super super cute! I'd love to make that! And I do love to paper piece!

  6. Love tour row and thank you for the tour.

  7. This is seriously awesome! I hope you take the finished block or quilt back to the shop and show them how you combined their rows. What a lucky baby!

  8. The trees are a perfect frame! I am not big on paper piecing, but those look very worthwhile! So so cute:)

  9. How very cute! Think my granddaughter would like this. Nice job!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
