Three Bears in the Yukon

Charity quilts for foster kids
Baby Bear
April 2016

Bear's paw quilt
Mama Bear
February 2016

Baby Bear was the final quilt in my Three Bears series, and I am thrilled to have it finished in time to include it, along with Papa and Mama Bear, in this year’s Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge!

Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge

The picture of the Papa Bear quilt was shown on this blog back in December. It had been my desire to have these three quilts stay together as a set, and I felt that it was serendipitous that this years' Hands2Help Challenge includes the Yukon Women's Transition Home in Whitehorse, Yukon. It is my hope the Three Bears will find a new home with a mom and her kids. 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.

    1. Thanks! As mentioned when I first made Papa Bear, while I like to make a different pattern for each of my quilts - to not only challenge myself, but to keep things lively - I really enjoyed doing this as a set based on the Bear's Paw design. They're not exactly the same... I did mix it up a bit ;)

    1. Thanks Nita! I mailed them out on 5/3 priority mail, so hopefully you get them no later than early next week. I am happy to see them go to this very worthy cause.

  5. What a great take on a traditional pattern! Just the kind of thing I like to make. And especially nice when it's going to someone who needs it. Sylvia at Treadlestitches, piecethepast@att.net
