Bear Baby Quilt by Debi Stokes - fb group member

“Wanted to share a quilt I made several years ago for a friend’s first baby. I got the idea from a book I received from my long-time pen-pal in Denmark. Only problem was everything in the book was written in Dutch and metrics. Neither of which I knew, so I improvised. Actually turned out really nice. The ears are loose and they have button eyes and noses.” – Debi Stokes
