Oh Betty! Do you just love this bear quilt? Your sister did such a great job!!! I am in love with this big teddy bear right in the middle of the quilt. We used cotton batting with a design called In the Moment all around the outside and then we did a big basket weave around the bear. If you look at the back of the quilt, you can see that I stitched paws in each of the bears circles. Sure hope you like it! The back fabric is minky. Adorable!!!
