Two quilt finishes in one week!  Goodness gracious me!

Baby Bear Paw Class Sample Feb13

The idea behind this quilt was to modernise the traditional bear paw block for a class I’ll be teaching next term.  You can read more info about it here.

This is the ‘baby’ size (approx. 55″ x 55″), but the pattern will also have the option of upsizing to a Mama Bear Paw Quilt.

I used a fq bundle of Savannah Bop which I won at FQ Retreat last year. The guts of 6 fqs went into the front, and the rest went into the back and scrappy binding.

For speed I quilted diagonally through the blocks,though there are many quilting options open to this pattern.  As with most of what I teach, when the pattern gets written up it will be available in my Etsy shop.

Well, I’m almost caught up with myself now! I will soon need to turn my attention to some birthday makes, but with my boiler broken down again, I just want to snuggle up in front of the fire!

Hope you are all keeping warm!
