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