Polar Bear Plunge

I really had no idea what I was going to make for this project when I signed up.  Then not long before Christmas I found out one of my best friends' mom was having significant health problems and I wanted to make a quilt for her...My big Christmas gift was an accuquilt cutter so I dug into my scraps and started working; in the back of my mind I thought I'll applique a polar bear on the quilt and it will work for the blog hop.  Then I realized I used white for the solid portions so that wouldn't work...I love flannel for the back of quilts so I searched and found a flannel polar bear print to use.  My friend's daughter says she likes the back even more than the front.  Once I was finished I started to think people wouldn't really see the polar bear tie in so I added this little mug rug.   I also have to include this tiny arctic wall hanging.  I bought this kit on our Alaskan honeymoon and finished it several years later. It now hangs in my craft room.   Be sure to vi
