Brenda's Bear quilt

Brenda made this cute bear quilt for her grandson. I sat on it way too long before loading it because I had no good ideas. She doesn't like traditional quilting, so I had to come up with some new ideas.
Well, she called me on Wednesday to check on the status, and I loaded it after I finished Charlotte's quilt and did a border or 2 to get started and then went to bed.

I quilted in my sleep, waking up many times, thinking, I could do this design, or that design. Needless to say, when I woke on Thursday, it wasn't finished. But I did finish it Thursday evening.

The outer border:

The next border:

The next border:

The sky:

And finally, the bear:

I delivered it Friday evening and she was so pleased with it that she sent me home with 3 more tops.
