A few weeks ago, I taught a Teddy Bear class at Essem Textiles. It was very popular and there was a wait list! The class will be repeated on April 21 and 28th! Contact Essem to sign up … there isn’t many spots left!
This Teddy Bear pattern is in the Book “Fat Quarter Baby.” In the class, I offer 2 sizes, along with speedier cutting and piecing directions. The pattern in the book is 33:=”x 37″ and the larger size is 41″ x 46.”
Here are pictures from the class:
Some are busy cutting their fabrics!
This is Madeline’s. She’s started to quilt it with a serpentine stitch.
Linda almost has her top completed … so cute with all the dotted fabric!
Nancy claims she’s not a quilter! I beg to differ with her! She’s done an awesome job with this teddy bear.
I love Lorraine’s with the honey bees! Perfect!
This was Anne’s first Teddy Bear and she didn’t quite have enough fabric for the back … so she learned how to do the diagonal stripe … super simple and very effective!

And this is Simina’s first quilt! I think she’s hooked!
And here is the one I made: I used Hobbs 80/20 batting. It is quilted with a thread that is new to me “Seracycle.” It is made by Mettler out of recycled 100% PET bottles. SEW – what did I think? The thread quilted very nicely. The small spool did not contain enough thread to sew this quilt and I had to substitute a white thread to finish the quilt. It’s a great idea, but the spools need to be bigger. If you are interested in using Seracycle, Essem Textiles carries it. I think it would be great for garment sewing.
One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!
