Thanks.  That is the way the pattern is so I will leave it that way.  I hate putting on borders anyway.

I love the playing with 9 patches! I have all these random strips I could cut and use in that pattern. Can’t wait to see how you quilt it.

Love that nine patch, Florence.  Gave me a couple ideas for quilts and I have lots of scraps patiently waiting in their bins.

Thank you Ladies. I, too, feel something isn't quite right with the front leg so I will see what I can do there. I'm not sure about rounding the humps, but I'll see what I can do there too, although the original pattern has it as is.

Keep a smile in your heart :) Dorian

I was commenting due to several bear pics I have around. Not to mention the one that cruises through my back pasture.

I think the flat rump is less noticeable in the original pattern because of the bear paw block that sits there.  If you can get more rump, the humps will look more natural.

 And I appreciate your advice, I'm just trying to figure out how to fix it. I did add an extra bit to the rump,and maybe thats why it looks off, but I had to add more to that back leg and so thought the extra bit on the rump was needed to. LOL

Thank you ! I did add an extra piece back there, so maybe that's why it looks off too. It's hard sometimes to tweak a pattern.

I finished one my wallhangings except for sewing the flag in place. Hubby thinks I should make it from gold or yellow so I'm going to put the binding on the other before I remake them.

Thank you again, ladies. I decided to use a bright yellow from the bed quilts to make the flags over again. I do think hubby was right. They stand out more. Of course, my sweet son-in-law is color blind and probably can't tell the difference.

Thank you. I had leftover binding from the bed quilts. Nice to use up scraps and coordinate them. Now I need to think of a gift for the older toddler. She’k appreciate it more than the babies.

Last photo of these gifts. Both wallhangings are finished. We're driving to see those babies tomorrow. So excited to see my son also.
