I made this baby quilt for a friend who's due very shortly. She LOVES bears, but I didn't want to go the cute blue teddy bear route. Instead I found a quirky bear print and fussy cut the bears. I'm going to quilt it with a bear paw panto.

Cute teddy bears make nice quilts, but your quilt can be used for a long time even after the toddler stage.

LOVE the way you have offset the bears so they are not all in the same place in every block.   That really provides a "life" and movement to the quilt.  Nicely done!

I really did try to center the bears though. Some blocks have two bears so they're not really centered. That kinda bothered me a bit when I was cutting out the blocks as my brain doesn't like it when things are "off". But it is what it is and now that it's done I kinda like it.

I am having fun playing in my novelty stash.  I just finished this top for a friend of my husband. 

I'm going to do another version with only black & white novelty fabrics in the stripes and TOT colors in the narrow borders between the zigzags.  I realized I have 2 very full baskets with only white or black fabrics, but I rarely get to use them because I"m always doing colors.  So I've got a couple of quilts planned where the novelties will only be black or white (backgrounds).  The one I"m working on now uses 50 black & 49 white fabrics - I did not need to use all the blacks in my stash - only used about half.  Assuming that basket is typical that means each holds approx 100 and I have 6 baskets of novelties.  Yikes - definitely SABLE. 

And I'm buying some specific fabrics for the latest one to be personal to the mom & dad.  They love to travel and go to Disney every year - I found this fabric at Joann's -how perfect is this!

That Disney fabric IS perfect.  I'm sailing on the Disney Magic again in October - wish I had time to make a tote with that fabric to take with me!  Maybe over Labor Day weekend.

I think your novelty quilts are all awesome. Of course to do these I Spy quilts you have to be a very organized person.  I think it is so fun to be able to add a personal touch to a quilt.  Glad you are back to enjoying the novelties.
