Then I sewed them together in bigger blocks, with the only rule being that 2 squares of the same fabric couldn’t be side by side or up and down. (Diagonal was fine.) There’s teddy bears sprinkled throughout this quilt, hence the name.
Then it sat, languishing, while I waited for inspiration to finish the Inverloch quilt. (It was ahead of the teddy bear quilt in the queue.)
I’m pretty sure this quilt has fabric from every quilt I’ve ever made.
After we took the first photo we brought it inside and I gazed fondly at it. I spent the last day of the holidays single-mindedly getting this project finished. (It was supposed to be housework day… but oh well!)
Often I make quilts thinking they’ll be for me and then I give them away. For example, the Inverloch quilt walked out of here yesterday, a birthday present to my mother.
But this one is staying right where it is. Weird, how a simple design of small squares can look so effective.
