Mama Bear

Bear's paw quilt

Mama Bear
February 2016

Mama Bear began with a color idea that I saw in an Indian Sari. Indian Saris are beautiful and their colors are so inspiring. I love the combination of purple, orange and pink. And while I try to do different quilt designs as much as possible, I wanted to do another Bear’s Paw quilt to go with Papa Bear.

Another source of inspiration for Mama Bear began this past Thanksgiving. At the cabin we stayed at in Big Bear for Thanksgiving, there is one bedroom that is decorated in the Three Bears theme – how fun is that? Since Thanksgiving, I have had the plan to do three Bear’s Paw quilts: Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear. Baby Bear is up next!

This quanket, along with Baby Bear and Papa Bear are being donated via the Hands2Help Challenge 2016 and will go to the Yukon Women’s Transition Home in Whitehorse, Yukon. I am inspired by these words on their website, “Kids deserve to feel safe“. These are words that fuel me to make and donate quilts for kids.
