Every year we make a cuddle quilt based on the Bernese National Specialty theme.
We used to have several quilters but now it is down to Vicky and I.
This years theme is Summit to Sea and is using National Park signs as part of the theme décor.
As an added detail, I was part of a Storm at Sea quilt along so the Berner's body, the foreground, sky, ocean and mountain are Storm at Sea blocks. The Berner's head is applique and there are flying geese evergreen trees. The majority of the center is batik, the main border is a print of National Park posters. We enjoy the whole process of planning, cutting, sewing, and adding a cozy polar fleece backing together, even though we live in different states. We donate the quilt to the BMDCA Health Fund Auction to earn money to research health issues in our beloved breed.
We do this because we can.
