Bear Quilt Top Finished

I am so excited that I finished the top for the bear quilt.  The kit was given to me and purchased from Keepsake Quilting. I am even more excited that the back of this quilt will hopefully include some of the clothes from the baby’s first year. The mother is looking for some that will have special meaning. I will see her on August 3rd, and am looking forward to what she might choose.   

My specialty is to re-purpose baby and toddler clothes into a new quilt for clients. I’ve done many of them over the years, and love it because it’s a color, design and pattern challenge for me, to create a quilt that uses re-purposing of fabrics or clothes.

    WOW. What a great idea. Re-purposing is a wonderful way to keep memories alive. Love the vibrant colors and patterns that you used on the bear quilt. Hope lots of people choose to get you to re-purpose their treasures. I have a few old shirts and ties from my Dad which I can't seem to part with…perhaps a wall hanging small piece would work…let's talk!

    Thanks, Z 🙂 I would love to work on making a special quilt re-purposing your dad's clothes, ties, etc. Send me an e-mail at acbeier71@gmail.com and we'll figure out a way to talk by phone and create something special.
