Teddy Bear Commissioned Quilt and 2017 BOM

The next commissioned quilt that I have to make is a queen-sized quilt featuring 12 appliqued teddy bear blocks surrounded by pieced blocks.   The pieced blocks will have a teddy bear print in the middle of them.

I will be designing 12 different applique blocks for this quilt.   And will be using them as my BOM for this year.  One block a month will be posted, and then when the next block is posted, the last month's block will be posted for sale on either Craftsy or Payhip.   Haven't decided for sure which one (or both) I'll use.

The first block is in process and show in it's fused state to the right.  I'll be stitching it tonite and will get the pattern written up this weekend.   A friend will be proof-reading it for me before I post it online.

Gratitudes:
1. For the office chair and floor protector that I've been blessed with from work as we get ready to move offices this weekend.

2. For a fun time last night at dinner with a quilting friend.

The first one is certainly cute! I'm looking forward to this, so be sure to let me know when you are ready to put up the pattern, and I'll put it on QuiltBOM. You have to go get that camera! Your patterns need it. It's a business expense to write off.
