Today I'd like to share a little embroidered quilt from the early 80's. Originally made for a little one yet born, and finished when he was, erm, well about 10 years old. Now it's waiting for the right special little person, and it will be considered vintage.
The size is 38"x48", a good size for a crib quilt.
This was hand embroidered, pieced and hand quilted by me circa 1982.
Each little square shows a part of the little bears busy day.
They start out with breakfast and have countless adventures throughout the day.
Mother bear must be exhausted!
The quilt motif is a heart shaped feather wreath.
I still love to embroider.
I used 3 strands of DMC 6 strand embroidery floss.
I love that they know how to make chocolate chip cookies!
I found the booklet in my file of quilting patterns.
It's dated 1981 and still has the iron-on transfer files.
The back of the booklet shows another colorway.
The bottom left, grandpa is reading a bedtime story. Next to it is a bubble bath!
Good night dear little bears....sleep tight...don't let the bed bugs bite!
