Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?

This baby quilt, book, and bear are for the baby of my son’s friend. The quilt is made from fabric designed by Eric Carle, the illustrator of the book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?. The fabric has pictures of the animals that are in the book. I fussy cut them for the large squares that surround the center block.

I found the pattern in a magazine that was loaned to me by a friend and bought the book and stuffed bear at Kohl’s.

I made the quilt top using a red fabric for the star points and forgot to pre-wash the fabric. I was concerned that the red would bleed, so I took it apart and used a pre-washed red/orange fabric for the triangles.  Luckily, I had not added the last border before I realized my mistake.
