Quickie Teddy Bear Quilt

This past weekend I made a quick baby quilt for a friend of mine.  She was wanting something with a teddy bear and I thought that this little guy was perfect._1291467

As I got ready to add the borders, I simply could NOT find a fabric that I liked for the borders, although I was pretty sure that I wanted to use a light yellow inner border _1281456

I also knew that I wanted to make it a bit longer, so I planned to make the bottom borders a bit wider than the side ones.

After about an hour of going thru my fabrics and deciding that I simply DID NOT have the appropriate fabric, I made a quick trip to my local quilt shop (fortunately only 1 mile away) and, as usual, they had the perfect fabric!!!

Scan_Pic0038 Once I had added the yellow borders and then put this fabric on the outside, I felt that it needed something else so I ended up adding the 1 inch blue border.
