Bear Hugs...

As of today, it is no secret that I am making Stevie a purple BEAR PAW quilt. I had to tell her. She follows my blog, and she's a smart cookie. She'd figure it out cuz she knows how I feel about purple.
A simple, two color quilt, will measure 63X83. The perfect size to cuddle up in. It will consist of 12 blocks, each 17-1/2X17-1/2 and I am using a 3 inch sashing. I'll join the sashing with a 3X3inch square and bind it without borders.
The quilt's name? "Bear Hugs"...what else.

To all the quilts I've loved before...

I made my first quilt when I was 18 years old. It fell apart after the first washing. I've learned alot since then, about this craft, my passion. I can't begin to tell you how many quilts have passed through these hands, many cherished and loved by others, many never to be seen again. At about mid point in my quilting journey I thought I should like to keep a diary of my quilts. That didn't happen...until now.
