Three Bears in the Yukon

Bear's paw quilt
Mama Bear

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.
