Wooly Bear Series - Day 2

Today is background day.
After placing the mountains and hills, it's time to add some colour.


We buy a lot of fabric but I don't think many buy fabrics just to fussy cut.
These two fall into that category. While they would add some interest to a bed quilt that was not their purpose when I brought them home.
A layer of evergreens and then some autumn colour.


I started leaving a gap for the bear. Why waste the material?
I soon gave that up.


After measuring, I sliced the strip into five 9.5 inch pieces.
I'll finish each piece now before I place the bear.while.

I've left the bottom of each as I haven't decided whether to bury the feet of the bears in water or grass.
