My Day Aboard the Polar Bear Plunge!

by | Jan 27, 2022 | 24 comments

Welcome aboard! Today it’s my turn to share my little project with you. Joan of MooseStash Quilting, presented bloggers with the challenge to make something inspired by bears, blue, or anything cold. I’m not big on bears, but I thought I could come up with something blue and cold!! Thanks you, Joan, for inviting me to join this fun blog hop!

First I’ll show you a quilt I made for my grandson, Dalton, who LOVES pandas! I made this a couple of years ago for him.

Dalton’s Panda

Here in the south, nothing is much colder than snow…well, unless that snow turns to ice, which it usually does-WHEN Mother Nature ‘blesses’ us with snow! For my project, I chose to create a large mug rug/candle mat using one of my digitized George and Birdie Bird snowmen designs. I added some lettering to my project.

If you would like a FREE copy of the snowman applique sans the wording, just click here. You will need to create an account or log in, if you already have one. Optionally you may download it from Payhip. I hope you enjoyed seeing my project and hope that you will visit my fellow bloggers today and leave them a sweet comment! We all love your comments!

    Hi Brenda! There is no worry that George will melt, at least in these parts. What a friendly looking snowman. You are so generous to share the pattern. I’ll bet Dalton just is over the moon with his panda quilt – hopefully it has been well loved since you made it for him. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
