Paper Foundation Pieced Wee Bear

Occasionally I decide I need to quilt just for fun.  I subscribe to a newsletter from Silver Lining Originals and each month she has a new pattern.  Last year's patterns were Wee Ones.  This is one of those patterns that I have wanted to find the time to try.  The Wee Bear was a bit of a challenge, but we all need that now and then.

I see that I have a few loose stitches from pulling the paper off.  I will have to get my pigma pen out and colour them.

Christmas is fast approaching in the quilt world, so this is the first Christmas quilting of the year.  I can't spill the beans on the whole quilt, as it belongs to a friend, but I will show you the border.

It is a cute fabric that is called count down to Christmas.  I quilted circles around each of the circles in the fabric, to make them pop.  I was going a little cross eyed in the process, but it was only thing I could think of to quilt.

Happy quilting!


  1. Okay, seriously?????? Circles around each one? Can't wait to see it done!

  2. Love the paper pieced bear! How cute is that? Looks hard to do! I found your blog through the SBM at Lily's Quilts. Love the quilt in your header picture too. :)
