Fun, Easy, Bold Quilt Patterns

Blue Bear Quilts was founded to help the beginner quilter get started on a new and fun hobby. Blue Bear Quilt patterns are designed to be easy for the beginning quilter, and stylish for the more advanced quilter, to make a quilt that they will be proud to display in their home or to give as a present to someone special.



Blue Bear’s head designer, Reed Johnson, was an attorney for 35 years. He has a creative side and started quilting about 15 years ago as a means of stress relief. He found he loves creating new quilt patterns and decided to pursue this new passion full time. He is primarily self taught, but has taken several courses with nationally known quilt instructors at APQS shows and several quilt designing courses at EQ University. He is going to become a Quilt-in-a-Day certified quilt instructor in September 2016
