Block of the Month Wool Quilt ~ Bear Lodge

This would be a great cabin quilt or a quilt for that special guy in your life!

The Wool Basket of Colorado and Cabin Creek of Minnesota are introducing a new Mystery BOM (Block Of the Month) Wool Quilt. The first 2 blocks are the bear and moose starting with the month of February. I've thrown in a little sneak peek of the middle section of the quilt to give you a better idea of the theme going on. The remaining 3 blocks you see here will be March, April and May. There will be 11 blocks total with appliqued borders. Two of the months will have two blocks, the rest of the months will have just one block. The quilt will measure about 44" x 55". All of the applique is very simple. The appliques are hand dyed 100% wool stitched onto a beautiful flannel by Maywood Fabrics.

I just love this quilt! This is a design by yours Karen of The Wool Basket is busy making up kits including the monthly patterns for this quilt. Please visit The Wool Basket for information on how to sign up.

If you would rather hook this design, two patterns very similar to this are available on my website Cabin Creek just click on 'Rug Hooking' and then on 'Animals'.
