Working on Ruth Ann – Sugar Bear Quilt

The posts in this series are all part of the pattern, Sugar Bear.  These are not tutorials or how to videos, but are of me making this quilt.  It’s meant to be similar to a self guided quilt along and hopefully feel like we are making this quilt together (even if you are finding this years later).  Do tag me on Instagram (@southerncharmquilts)!  I’d love to see what you do with it.  🙂

Ruth Ann is a favorite block of mine. I’d actually like to see a whole quilt of her. She’s full of friendship stars, one of the first blocks I made when I started quilting. Although, this version of the friendship star is a bit different than the usual 9-patch version. Hope you like it!

Video Summary

We are working on Ruth Ann today. I LOVE friendship stars, and there is one in each of Ruth Ann’s centers. Changing up the light and dark fabrics on this one can really change the look of her. Again, as you watch me work on this block today, I am really down to the tiniest smidgen of fabrics which makes it VERY hard to settle on which fabrics to use. She’s our last block and the last post in this series. I hope you’ve enjoyed this as much as I have!
