To me, polar bears are majestic and magical. At the zoo, I could watch them all day. And the walruses. But let's focus on the polar bears, shall we?
This polar bear is actually made of white felt and is wearing a saddle made of Anna Maria Horner flannel. He (yes, I imagine he is a boy polar bear) is embellished with perle cotton french knots and some hand quilting for decoration, but also to secure him to the quilt.
The quilt measures approximately 21" x 21" and is meant to be a wall hanging. It is improv pieced and free-motion quilted. I even threw in some delicious perle cotton for added pizzaz.
I love this guy. From the beginning, I had every intention of selling him in the show. Now, I'm not so sure.
With love and waffle kisses.
