Bjorn the Bear for Ava

My sweetie's niece had a baby girl 6 months ago.  But she lives all the way in Edmonton so we haven't seen her yet.  When I found out a few weeks ago that Ava and her mom were coming for a visit this week, I knew I had to make a baby quilt!

I love Elizabeth Hartman's patterns so I decided to make little Ava a Bjorn the Bear quilt.


I pulled nine pink fat quarters from my stash (some Cotton and Steel, some Blueberry Park and other really cool prints), and used Kona Espresso and Kona White for the bears. For the background, I went with Kona Latte.

I needed to finish this one quickly so once again, I went with a big meander.


The backing is a really sweet pink print I purchased a few months ago.


And for the binding, I used a pink stripe which I absolutely love!


Bjorn the Bear finishes at about 44" square.

Will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Quilt Matters for TGIFF.
