Bears in the Woods is one of my very first quilts. I did the designing, sewing, and quilting (with loads of help from my magazine co-workers). Made mostly from scraps recycled when our fabric buyer did a little office cleaning. The title is inspired by black bears at my first house. A combination of traditional quilt blocks: Bear Paw, Log Cabin, and Square in a Square. Cotton fabrics, wool batting. —Joyce Robinson
