'We’ll be Friends Forever, won’t we, Pooh?' asked Piglet.
'Even longer,' Pooh answered.

I just finished making my first "Our Forest. Winter" quilt with Maples, Evergreens and the Bear. In a previous blog post, I showed you how to make tree appliques from "Trees from the forest" applique pattern that I use in this quilt. Now it is time to introduce you to "The Bear".
"The Bear" is the first applique pattern from the "Forest animal" applique series. It is a cute hand-drawn three layer applique. The bear belly and face is appliqued on top of a body and the tiny nose sits on the top of the face. The eyes, the mouth and the arms are easy to embroider by hand or machine. This applique pattern is cute and quick to make and can decorate any kid's quilt or garment with a little friend.
