  • What a Bear!

    The pattern is called Mod Bear Paw by sewfreshquilts. It was a little bit of “a bear” to make. There were a lot of 1” squares to work with and a number of narrow (3/4”) WOF strips to cut. I really struggle with cutting such narrow strips accurately. All in all though, I’m glad I made it, ‘cause I DO love a challenge. The instructions and illustrations were great...as always with Lorna’s patterns. The bear paw blocks are made from Blank Quilting Primitive Basics that I won in a giveaway. This is just the top. Lately I’ve only done tops and I store them until I am ready to gift them.

                  Oh, my goodness, what a beautiful quilt! Though it's all pretty amazing, I absolutely LOVE the border with the paw prints on the tree bark fabric. Fantastic work!

                      I never would have the patience to work with such small pieces. Totally amazing!

                        That certainly does look challenging. I love the paw print border.

                          Bec - you did a beautiful job with piecing this quilt. I would say that you nailed this challenge.

                          Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                          Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
