Project Linus - Toddler teddy bear quilt

On April 23rd I attended Brandon's first Project Linus quilting bee. The organizers had no idea how many people would come. Much to everyone's delight 40 plus volunteers showed up to piece, iron, quilt, croquet and tie fleece blankets. I took my old Singer Rocketeer sewing machine and selected teddy bears with blue sashing.  I finished the piecing at the workshop.  At home I added a ribbons and a border.
The free motion quilting designs are loop de loop in the teddy bear blocks.
Spirals on the blue sashing and heart shaped leaves in the border.  I used Lisa Yarost's binding tutorial.
The binding is only two inches wide and was applied with a Bernina #71 Flat Fell foot size 8 mm.
This was a quick fun quilt to make.  Happy stitching.
