More Bears......

Finished the final two blocks of the military bears.  First block was this one for the Air Force.   This is Sterling and is named for a long time family friend who passed away several years ago.

 Second block made this weekend was this one for the Coast Guard.   He is named Nick in honor of one of my ex-students who is going into the Coast Guard.


















And this is the layout I've got started.  The two-patches along the outside are what I'm thinking of for the border, with the same light blue used as the background filling in the remainder of the border.

Still to be done is to rework the the Navy bear to tweak his face.   Redesign is done, I just need to make the replacement block.  Once done I can put the quilt together.












And this is Jan, who at a quilt retreat and ironing the quilt that she is working on.

Gratitudes:
1. Cooler weather is due tomorrow.
2. My toe doesn't hurt after clobbering it this past weekend and the torn nail will eventually grow out.

Your bear quilt is going to be so cute!! Question for you - is the Army bear saluting with its left hand? It looks like it is to me, but I wasn't sure. (They are only to salute with their right hand.)

I like both the new bears! What a great quilt that is. I would swap positions on the ones on the left side, so the two saluting bears are on opposite corners. I think your AF bear must be serving in Korea, because that's where I always see those pilots have that jacket. =) I'm sorry about your toe, but glad it isn't being too painful. Is your mouth all healed now?
