    Default Bear Paw Quilt

    I thought I would post some pics of my Bear Paw Quilt that I finished recently. This quilt took me forever to do. When I was cutting out the pieces, I put two rotary blades on my cutter and did not notice until I was almost done cutting. So most of the pieces were off up to 1/8th of an inch. I had to measure and sew every piece and on most pieces had to frog them and redo. I longarmed it on my new Innova 22". Instead of a simple pantograph I go for the Gusto and and do ruler work, block pantograph, and some drawn on paws. I have about 95 hours into the long arming. Hubby said I can not give it away as first intended because of the hours into it. He wants me to enter it in a show but I am not sure its good enough because has some mistakes in it. Please let me know what you think and if it is too bad to put in a show.
    Thanks Ginny

    Incredible. I agree with hubby.
