I've discovered that the list of possible items a teddy bear might need is without limit. This time - a little (12" x 16") quilt using fabric scraps from my cupboard.
I followed this tutorial (except I hand quilted). I even made the pillow with not one but two little pillow cases.
This doll's quilt would be a great project for a keen child. It takes you through all the steps of quilt making - but at warp speed. Very satisfying. Previously I've made only two crib quilts and they took me forever to complete.

Enjoy your weekend coming up. We've got a long one here in New Zealand to celebrate (officially but not actually) the Queen of England's birthday.
