Blogger Quilt Festival

Amy at http://parkcitygirl.blogspot.com/2009/04/quilt-festival-spring-2009.html has organized the first on-line Blogger's Quilt Festival. I am suppose to post a photo of my favorite quilt and tell the story behind it. I think my favorite has to be "A Little Bit More...About Bears". I designed and made this quilt in 2001 after a number of people complained that my "All About Bears" quilt was too big. I used softer colors for this one, which I prefer.


Here is a link to her blog. There are over 250 quilters signed on already, so there is a lot to enjoy.

I just came back from the Mississauga Quilt Show and saw two of the patterns you designed made into quilts. Your bears are marvelous little creatures. I'm waiting for your tiles pattern...

What an adorable bear quilt Dorothy... I love how parts of the appliques trail out of their block into other areas of the quilt... 8-)
