A Quilter's Journey - Patches

A good friend of mine had given me quilts for each of my children when they were born.  When her 3rd was born, I wanted to return the favour. I found a cute bear quilt on-line, but unfortunately there was no pattern included.  It didn't look too difficult, so I took the photo and drafted a pattern for myself with a few adjustments.

Each of the strips in the rail blocks is 1"x3" finished, and the bear and background were built from 6" finished blocks.  This was the first quilt I made with fabric entirely purchased specifically for the project. It was started in April 2004, and finished in Nov 2004. 

I think it marks the turning point in my quilting career - from "do I like this?" to "addicted quilter".
