MOD Bear Paw QAL Progress

Progress is happening!

Bear Paw QAL

I am really loving how my bear paw quilt is looking!

It is difficult to tell from the photos, but the background is a soft grey print, not white.

It has been a challenge for sure.  A bit of unsewing has happened.  And, apparently, I have an ultra scant 1/4″ seam allowance.  “Personal Private Measurement”, as one of my all-time favorite quilt teachers would say.  I still cherish Mary Ellen Hopkins book…‘The It’s Okay If You Sit On My Quilt’.

My blocks are a bit larger than Lorna’s pattern says they should be.  No biggie…I am making adjustments for that.

I still have the borders to sew.  Slow and steady; I’ll get there.

  9. I getting ready to make that quilt now! I’m pretending the bear paw blocks are leaves and making them from a variety of prints in fall colors. Not sure what color I want my bear yet. I love Lorna’s quilts. I’ve made a couple of her patterns, but this one looks much more involved. I hope I can handle it! Lol
    Your whole quilt is just beautiful. I especially like your bear. It’s an awesome color.


    • You can handle it, Becky! Especially since you are already familiar with Lorna’s patterns! There are a lot of pieces…label them if that helps you!

      I thought about fall prints as well when I was putting my version together. I don’t know why, but somehow I abandoned the green and red and went to gold and brown. I think getting all of those fall colors in will make a spectacular quilt!

      Bears live in my back yard…I’ve seen them in a variety of black, brown and cinnamon. Your quilt is going to be wonderful!
