When Doves Fly- Tribute to Prince Blue Bear's latest quilt pattern.

Blue Bear was busy creating blocks for a contest, when he created this purple one that looks like birds flying. With Prince's passing, he thought it would be a nice tribute to Prince, so he named it, "When Doves Fly." It has 6 alternative layouts in the pattern; some are more organized and some are disorganized. This would be a great wall hanging for a modern loft or apartment. It would also look great in a student's dorm room. The link to purchase is at the bottom of this post.

Box of Chocolate Covered Cherries pattern is now available on Craftsy

Beautiful Appliqué Quilt

      Cherry Trees and Robins (1992) by Hortense Beck. 

This beautiful quilt is on display at the Accuquilt Museum in Omaha Nebraska. When I see works like this, I always wonder, how does someone ever get something like this finished. Even if machine stitched, it would still take an enormous amount of time.

Blue Bear's Accuquilt Contest Block

The bear has entered a quilt block design contest and would love to win for the exposure that it would give him as a new quilt designer. He would love it is you would help him by clicking on the link below and voting for his block. He tells me that you can vote every 24 hours until 4/22. Silly bear. Even though, he does seem to be a pretty good designer. 

You need to confirm your email once, but you will not be put on their email list unless you check the box to opt into their emails. He wants me to ask you to ask your friends to help as well. Pesky bear, but it is a pretty quilt block and we would like for him to design some more. 

Blue Bear and his friends thank you so much for your assistance!

Blue Blear Quilt Kits & More's first pattern

Blue Bear Quilt Kits & More's first pattern has gone live on Craftsy. It is a perfect quilt for a newborn baby or a young toddler. Children will be so excited to show everyone the teddy bears dancing around the blue stars on their very own quilt. This is a beginner quilt project and if you can sew a 1/4" seam and a blanket stitch, you can make this quilt in a weekend. Blue Bear will have the kits available for this quilt pattern in their Etsy store very soon.

Check it out!
