I am going to try and post a picture of one of my flimsys on every Friday. It will be good to see them all, I keep them stored in 2-gallon ziploc bags with binding and backing(if I have the fabric for them already picked out). Today I am showing you 'There is a Bear in the Woods'. My inspiration for this quilt was a post dated Oct. 20, 2009 that Bonnie Hunter did on her blog that dealt with adding elements to an older UFO to suit her taste now. I had made 30 of these Bear Paw blocks many years ago and was never happy with them. I had tried to get rid of them several times, but always pulled them out of the donate pile at the last minute. I also inherited my Mom's UFOs when she passed away. After seeing Bonnie's blog, I rethought these blocks, pulled these green strips my Mom had cut to make a tree quilt, set the blocks on point, and ended up with this flimsy. I really like it, and now I am able to donate the remaining blocks without any regrets! My Mom would be happy that I used one of her UFOs! Check back next Friday to see another flimsy.
