A Beary Warm Welcome

I should be putting photos in of our Mackinac trip but instead I am putting in pictures of the latest quilt! I wrote about this bear fabric and posted a photo now the quilt is done! I used mice squares in the center of every 9 patch, and my friend Liz, quilted mice into it. You can see on the close up and on the back, especially, how cute those mice are!

This is the label. I work at the U of Michigan doing biomedical research. I have to manage many mice and we have a very large breeding colony (19 different knock out strains of mice!). The wonderful woman that actually keeps track of all the breeding and pups and helps me ALOT, is kimberly. Not only is she a co-worker, she is a friend. She and her husband have decided to adopt another child, they have 2 children already, one 11 and one is 14. The newest addition is Sean and he is 2years old. They go to court for the adoption finalization on the 12th of this month. I thought this quilt was perfect for both a beary special little boy and my friend who manages my mouse breeding colony!

This is Kimberly after she opened the quilt this morning.

I hope Sean likes it as much as she did! Welcome to your new family, Sean!!

I am sure the littlr guy is going to like his nre quilt. I remember when you first posted this fabric. It is so cute. The mouse quilting sure did put it over the top. Did she design the pattern by herself?
