Bear Paw

This is my Bear Paw quilt. This quilt was started the weekend of November 18, 2000. There were 5 of us who got together that weekend to work on the same quilt project. The pattern that the rest of the group worked on was "Circle of Friends". I was still too new to quilting and not sure of my skills. I took a look at the number of templates that were required and decided that I would make Bear Paw instead. I finished all the blocks for the quilt that weekend in November 2000 and they sat it that state until July 2005. In July I finished piecing the top and then quilted it on my new long arm machine with the clam shell pattern. The quilt was shown finished at the October 2005 PieceMakers Quilt Guild show and tell. I wonder if Colette, Veryan, Teresa, and Cyndi ever finished the quilts they started that weekend?

  1. You know I did... It hangs in all of its blue and yellow glory on my mother's bedroom wall. I finished it for Christmas 2000.
