Hopes & Dreams
Linus and tigers and bears, oh my!
This is the ninth pattern QUILTMAKER has published in support of Project Linus, an organization that provides handmade blankets for seriously ill or traumatized children. Learn more about Project Linus at projectlinus.org or by writing to Project Linus, P.O. Box 5621, Bloomington, IL 61702-5621.
This year's design was created by Matthew Pridemore.
"My wife Heidi Pridemore designs quilts for Quiltmaker and other magazines. I thought I'd try my hand at designing a block that would be simple to piece. When Quiltmaker Editor-in-Chief Brenda Groelz asked if she could use my block for this year's Project Linus quilt, I was delighted to contribute to this worthwhile charity."
