I have several blogs that I follow... one of them, Mama Sparks World, explained how she made a rag quilt. I thought one of my bears could really use a rag quilt and I wouldn't mind ( not at all!) using up some of my scraps. Mama Sparks' quilt used 5 inch squares which is way too large for my bears. I emailed her about using much smaller squares and she ok'd the idea. My final squares are 3 inches.
