Bear Paw Progress...


Ok! This is far I have gotten on the Bear Paw, inspired by Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times. Mine is not quite like any I have seen, but I used up what I had, and that is good. A few bright spots pop out at me, and I kind of like that. I am working on borders now. This has been such a fun project! Thanks Judy!! The blue was a yard given to me by my friend Sharon. The rest is all scraps. So nothing purchased for this quilt at all.
Have a marvelous day!!!

Your Bear Paw is splediforous....

I recognize some of those fabrics as ones I have in my studio too.

It really is a good feeling to use up some of the fabric we already have.

This is delightful and I love that you used all from you stash of scraps and gifted fabric. My first quilt was a Bear Paw.

Looks like a great way to use up those small scraps.

With the honeymoon being over does that mean you are a full fledged mother-in-law now?

Enjoy your day off.

Bright spots are always good in a scrappy quilt. I learned that you should scatter the bright spots around the quilt to draw the eye around.

Lookin' good *s* Blocks such as the bear paw really challenge me . . . . I have such a hard time getting those toes to all point in the proper direction.
