Teddy Bear Paw Quilt Pattern

Holly Clarke

Hi! I’m Holly

Welcome to my quilty little corner of the internet. I’m a designer, quilter, fabric junkie, maker, coffee drinker, and flower smeller.

Ever since I caught the quilting bug, there was no turning back, I’m obsessed. I hope you enjoy following along with me on my quilting journey.
