Fantastic Crazy Quilting in Latest "A Needle Pulling Thread"!

The latest issue of my favourite Canadian stitching magazine, A Needle Pulling Thread, was in my mailbox this week. I had been waiting anxiously for this issue because I knew Grovenore Flato's crazy quilted teddy bear was being featured.  I am proud to say Grovenore is an online friend and fellow Albertan.  She has had some incredible crazy quilted items in the Calgary Stampede Exhibition in recent years and has lots of ribbons to show for it.

Here is a little sneak peek of what you will see when you check out the magazine.  There are four pages of wonderful close up photos of different views of Flora the Bear.  In the article Grovenore shares how she made her.  This bear is delightfully encrusted and I could just look at the photos all day long, always seeing something I hadn't noticed before - so many great details!
Way to go, Grovenore!!
