The fabric at the top and base was in my stash and is from "The MVP Collection" by Fabri-Quilt Inc - Pattern 567. I think it's so pretty and it would easily fit with lots of colours in any project.
I haven't finished it yet but it's well on it's way.
I didn't use a pattern... just my imagination... so I can't give credit to any publication, however I did take the "bear" from Honey Bear by Chook Shed.
B is a book that I purchased last week or so from one of the many online sites. It's one I've had on my list to add to my shelf for ages... so finally I did.
