Story Book Teddy Bears

Story Book Teddy Bear Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies


Purchase Storybook Teddy Bear Pattern


I would love for you to meet my Story Book Teddy Bears.  They are two sisters.  They are in charge of all the stories that are being written at this very moment by people all over the world.  Of course, that would be too much work for just one little bear.  So they divide this enormous job between the two of them.

Her little sister then takes over while she rests a little.


I designed my little story book teddy bear quilt patterns on request, just before Christmas.  I couldn’t resist making them afterwards.

As I finished making one of them, the thought of the other one suddenly occurred to me.  I suppose such is the way of story book bears.

Stories can be told in so many ways.  I love to tell stories through paintings.

I picked up these three paints – Quinacridone Gold, Moon Glow and Indanthrone Blue.  I love the name Moon Glow.

Here is a sketch I finished in December.  I really wanted to paint this picture, and I also really wanted to use those colours.   Not a perfect match, but it was fun to use some unusual colours for the painting.

I see myself walking toward the viaduct despite the stormy sky.


We all have the power to weave a little tale of our own.  The little bears are muses, giving us a little nudge now and then.  If you want to make a story bear, the 10″ pattern is available on my shop.


Happy Storytelling,


I am also linking up on Life Thru The Lens, Through My Lens, Seasons, Our World Tuesday, Wednesday Around The World, Photo Friday, and Friday Photo Journal along with other linky parties on my Events And Links page.

    Your paintings tell the most beautiful of stories, Soma. The sky in your painting is amazing! Love your little bears, they are so very sweet.

    Adorable! Thanks for sharing these cuties on Midweek Makers

    Very nice teddies – I think one would be cute as a centerpiece in a baby quilt.
    It is not surprising that you work with another medium as an artist. I too was a painter prior to becoming a quilter.

    What a cute pair of bears :) Your painting is lovely, and I think the colours work great together.

    Your teddy bears are so cute!!!

    So creative Soma, and the bears are adorable! The story is a fun accompaniment to the pattern. I love that you share all your different creative outlets with us through your blog. :)

    I love the idea of keeping the stories written all over the world. What an image. I think this needs to go out with all of your Story Book Bear patterns. It could be meaningful to so many people in different situations. Great pattern–and great painting. Skies are my favorite part of landscapes.

    I’m totally in a bear mood lately and I just love your bear! Your painting is so beautiful!

  • rosa February 3, 2017 at 14:22

    These are so lovely!

  • Alycia February 3, 2017 at 08:22

    Such sweet little bears. And yes – we all can tell stories – yours are just so creative!!! ;-)

  • Pat in WNY February 3, 2017 at 04:55

    Sweet little bears! Did you intentionally paint an image of George Washington into your storm clouds, because that is what I see. Then went searching for the rest of Mt. Rushmore presidents but only see the one image.

  • Dixie February 2, 2017 at 21:04

    Sweetest bears and keeper of the tales too! Perfectly creative idea.
    Dynamic painting. What a great sense of movement. Lovely!

  • Mary February 2, 2017 at 18:25

    Those little bears are so sweet. I like the idea of a daytime keeper of stories as well as the night keeper.

    Your painting is just wonderful. I love the colors you have selected. That sky looks like some we have had lately in CA.

  • Susan February 2, 2017 at 14:37

    Sweet adorable educated bears. Your painting reminds me of watching summer thunderstorms rolling in.

  • krislovesfabric February 2, 2017 at 10:57

    Love your painting, especially the clouds :) So fun that your storybook teddies have a job to do, they look like earnest and steadfast friends!

  • Lori Smanski February 2, 2017 at 10:11

    aww they are so adorable. I love your little stories that you do.

  • susie February 2, 2017 at 09:22

    What adorable little Story Book Bears you have created!! Wouldn’t they be sweet in a child’s quilt?!
    Your viaduct painting is so pretty…. I love the stormy sky and can feel that pull that is drawing you towards it!

  • Kathleen February 2, 2017 at 09:21

    SO CUTE!! Now you know I just have to make one for Addie! :)

  • Janine February 2, 2017 at 06:50

    These are wonderful little bears! I’m glad all the stories are in safe hands :) Your picture looks great too. I love the dramatic sky. I can see pictures in your clouds like in the real sky and I’ve not noticed that in a painting before :)

  • Patty February 2, 2017 at 05:16

    These are darling. I love the painting.
