I made this quilt 2 years ago for my partner's sister's third child, Shelley. It was quickly put together from pink scraps and then beautifully quilted by my talented friend Jo. I am hopeless at quilting and eschew anything but straight lines and stippling, so Jo made a lovely heart quilting design on this one, turning a pretty boring cot quilt into something really special.

I found this pattern at http://www.quilterscache.com/T/TeddyBearBlock.html and modified it a little. And don't look at the mess on the sewing (aka dining room) table! Poor bear is still unfinished. After several clean ups I have also misplaced the fabrics I was using, so I guess in one of my future clean ups I will find it and then be able to finish this quilt.
I love the Wuthering Heights fabrics, in fact I love almost anything by 3 Sisters. I don't know if I will ever finish this quilt as I started hand-quilting it. I adore the look of hand quilting, but just find it so difficult to master.
