Lone Star Quilt Coat

Scrappy Bear Path Quilt

Believe it or not, this quilt has been in the works for a very long time. In fact, it was the second Bear Path I started, way before I had even written the pattern or sent it off to testers. However, I ended up not having the time to finish it before the release, and then it sat, in pieces until I became motivated to finish up some WIPs. I’m so glad I chose toContinue reading
