Roly Poly Teddy Bear Baby Quilt

Today I’m going to give you all the scrap requirements for the Roly Poly Teddy Bear baby quilt. I had no idea how many brown scraps I had. Then I remembered that I made a Ginger Belle quilt designed by Carrie L. Nelson last fall. I used prints from the Kansas Troubles Harvest Moon line.  The quilt seemed a little dark when I was sewing it, but I was so pleased with the end result — that quilt was very hard to give away.

When I dug through my 3 inch squares, I had plenty of brown and dark gold prints to choose from. If you don’t have a lot of brown, I think this quilt could be made in almost any color.

Scrap fabric requirements:

3″ squares

168 white/cream squares

98 brown squares

18 pink squares

2″ squares

8 brown squares

2.5″ Squares

12 brown squares

4 white/cream

1″x3.5″ strip

16 pink

3.5″ pink strips for the border

Use your design board to lay out the general shape of the bear. I find it easiest to start with the head.

Contemplate the layout. I’ll be back next week with the sewing instructions for this simple sweet bear.
