    Default Congrats to the happy couple!

    I am almost finished with this wedding quilt. Just waiting for the bride's mom to get back to me with some info. for the label. This took me some time to make since the sashing and borders were pieced. I found a picture on "images" of a Bear Paw quilt that I really like made from batiks. I copied it and made this one out of colors that will go in the bride and groom's home. Her mom sent me a photo of a rug in their house with a black background and florals in the colors you see in this quilt. It's a fairly large quilt for me since I usually make lap and smaller. I think this will fit nicely on a twin bed. I quilted it in-the-hoop and managed just fine. I backed it with a black and white gingham. I really enjoyed using up scraps and stash to make this. I do have to say, though, that working with scraps really adds a lot of time to the process. I think it's worth it though since I'm extremely pleased with this quilt.

    Of course I don't mind, Andrea! I'm flattered that you like it. The units to make it were fairly easy so I didn't have much difficulty copying the image I found online. It's also really gorgeous in batiks.

    Thank you, Rebecca! I thought batiks, too, and I just love to combine colors with black. I really love all the colors you chose and the pieced sashing and borders are just fantastic.

    I also wanted to mention that I was a bit concerned if that pieced border was going to be wavy when I completed the quilt. When I applied the binding I held it really taut and let the quilt border feed through on it's own with no tension on it. It worked out really well and no wavy borders. I think pulling the binding nice and taut as I attached it to the quilt is a technique I need to remember for the future.

    Here's another Bear Paw that I thought was really pretty. http://www.gladcreationsquilts.com/s...-sku-GC165.htm

    This is beautiful. I'm not usually into traditional designs but this really is stunning. Your points are perfect. I would also like to save this as an inspiration. What does "in the hoop" mean? Does it mean it was quilted by hand?
    Hugs,

    Here's another Bear Paw that I thought was really pretty. Bear Tracks
    I'll try to remember that with the next binding. I tend to lay the binding on top of the quilt more loosely and it does get a bit wavy sometimes. I'm still a newbie in quilting and I'm mostly just happy I finished. Lately, I want them to be better than just finished, so your advice is very much appreciated!
    The other bear paw is also pretty but can't reach my excitement for yours. I like that pattern too but I don't care for those dark colors so much. (says the girl that loves anything black...)
