Taking the Polar Bear Plunge!

Joan over at Moosestash Quilting put together a fun challenge to make a polar bear inspired project…. something blue or icy or in my case, just a good, old-fashioned polar bear!

I was lucky enough to get to pattern test Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts’ Bear Pattern and this was my test block

Isn’t he cute?

When the Polar Bear Plunge came along, my mind kept coming back to this bear…I wondered how he would look as a Polar Bear?

Turns out, he’s pretty darn cute! I turned this little guy into a pillow but you can bet I’ve “bearly” scratched the surface of how many colors I want to make this cute bear up in!

Thank you, Joan at MooseStash Quilting for hosting this fun hop! I can hardly “bear” to wait to see what everyone else has made!

  1. Your polar bear pillow cover is darling. I am starting to get a “thing” for pillow covers. It’s so easy to change decor with them and not even have to buy new pillows! You did a great job.
