Polar Bears Nearly Complete

Yesterday it was dinosaurs and now it is polar bears!  Judy L called number 5 in the UFO Challenge and that happened to be the dreaded Polar Bear Quilt. 

It started out as a kit in Alaska about 6 years ago.  It was a wall hanging and I really liked it.  But my problem came at home with no wall space to put it. 
I decided to make it a quilt by adding a second section.  The blue fabrics have the effect of the Northern Lights. 

The two sides are mirror images of each other with polar bear families on both sides.

I never could figure out what to do to quilt it, then it became unloved.  But now it is nearly complete except for the binding.  I did an all over meander in a light blue thread that matched the Snowball Mystery

The backing is left over from the borders and pieces with a cotton sheet
 from the Purple Cow. 

The Polar Bears will go into the closet and wait for someone to need a quilt.  I am sure whoever gets it will love it and I will love having another UFO crossed off my list!  Yeah!



  1. the mirror image was a great idea!

  2. You are one up on me. Way to go.

  3. Great finish, Glen -- I'm glad you got that one off your back! Haha! :)


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
