Bear Paw Quilt :: Blogger's Quilt Festival


I'm so excited to join in the Blogger's Quilt Festival this fall, hosted by Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side. This is my first time joining the festival, but I'm already so excited to check out the quilts and blogs of all who have entered.

Those who know me know that I'm a big fan of traditional blocks. I've always admired bear paw quilts, but it wasn't until my Instagram friend, Lori (@islandtimequilting), starting making one with these Bread and Butter prints, that I decided to jump on board.

I constructed my blocks using 2" (finished) squares and 1" sashings. At some point soon, I'll post a tutorial for the block. The quilt finishes at 82" square and will eventually go on the bed in our guest room.






I'm a sucker for a beautiful quilt hanging on a country fence.

  6. Welcome to the Festival! This is such a darling quilt! I have also loved the bear paw pattern forever, but have only ever made a few blocks here and there, never a whole quilt! The Bread and Butter is a perfectly fun choice, too!!!And you definitely have the quilt/fence/beautiful photo thing down!!!

  8. Bear Paws is a favorite of mine, too. Your scrappy delight looks so good. I especially love the shot on the fence. It shows the colors and quilting so well. Thanks for sharing.
    BTW, your old blog doesn't point to this one correctly since you left off the http://www prefix.

    1. Believe me...I questioned myself about the white binding. Haha. I hope I don't regret it, but it will be on a bed in our guest room, so I'm hoping it'll be okay. Thanks for your sweet comments.
