    My second daughter is having her first baby...due in 8 days! It's a girl and her name is Lily. I made this quilt for her. The woman who quilted it did such a wonderful job. The bears were not quilted and are puffy and stand out.

    That's a darling quilt! Did you make up the pattern? I've never seen one with bears peeking out. What a lucky baby....and I love the name Lily too.
    Nice job and congrats, Granny

    Actually I saw the quilt picture somewhere, then my quilting friend and I were looking through her stash and there it was! The pattern for Peekaboo Bears. It was a xerox copy of a typed pattern. I looked up on the web just now and found that a woman designed the quilt for a Quiltmaker magazine contest in 1996. I couldn't find the pattern online though; that was a long time ago!

    Here's the blog the designer wrote about the quilt.

    Too adorable for words. Wouldn't that work up cute with cats peeking out instead of bears? Smiles and hugs!!

    How funny! As soon as I saw it I was wondering if you had named it as my suggestion was going to be Peek-A-Boo Bears. I've never seen this pattern or any other quilt done that way. She'll sure be warm in Gramma's love with that quilt!
