Here we are again; we have the beginning of a new month, and the eleventh little quilt of the year is ready. Where has the time gone? It's cool enough now to need quilts on the bed, especially if you're like Teddy,
who seems to have a sore throat and fever. He drinks hot tea and then snuggles all the way up to his chin underneath the warm quilt.
I even made new flannel sheets and a pillowcase for his bed. Doesn't he look comfortable?
I made the quilt from a pattern in the book Liberated String Quilts, by Gwen Marston. I do my string piecing on a paper foundation, rather than cloth, since I hand quilt, and it means one less thickness of fabric to stitch through. I like the Scottie dog print for the backing; the quilt could be reversed if Teddy thinks baskets are for girl bears.
