|Big Bear Little Bear Quilt|
I started out by buying the fabric from Massdrop way back in November. It has totem poles, and my boss is "totem pole people." His words, not mine. I had this idea in mind for a "brick" look, so I took out the graph paper and drew it out. I had 7 prints that I was using (not including the 3 accent bricks), so I was able to arrange the blocks in a way that there were no two bricks of the same fabric next to each other. Maybe the same design, but different background color.
Once I finished that Berry Bravo quilt, I got to cutting the fabric. I liked how easy it was to cut the fat quarters, and I think I won't be so reluctant to buy them in the future. A fat quarter just sounds like so little fabric...
|again, I need a design wall, instead of a "design bed"|
To quilt, I just started by making a line from corner to corner on my top corner blocks, and went from there. I found my fabric marker pretty much disappeared instantaneously, so eventually I got to the point where I had to mark each line individually, and it would still nearly disappear before I could get the line done.

One time they looked out to see a bear attaching the pen.
Looks like the pen is under bear attach once again...
