I have been a quilter for over 15 years now, inspired by my late Grandma Emma who spent many hours quilting and Tatting. My first ever quilt I made in honour of her and cut out each 2 ½ inch square of fabric with scissors, stitched each piece together by hand with needle and thread, then hand quilted it...I was 23. Tatting, the ancient art of Victorian lace making, she taught me at the age of 12. And although quilting has somewhat taken over my life, I still enjoy the art of Tatting now and again.
I made this flannel quilt for a friend to give as a gift. I cut up the bear panel and made nine patches to go along with the bear blocks to make a quick quilt. I quilted it using the pattern Popcorn small and King Tut thread. I love flannel baby quilts!
