Create an Heirloom From Your Favorite Scraps |
Coordinated Fabrics Will Also be Stunning in This Quilt!
Scraps of all sizes will find a place in this classic quilt. Go through your stash and pull out a combination of your favorite colors. Once completed, you’ll have a quilt to treasure for years to come.
The Bear Paw block lends itself to scraps, as you see in this beautiful example, although fat quarters and yardage will work too. Coordinate the colors around a season, such as Christmas, autumn or spring pastels. Another option is to choose colors to match your decor or that you just plain love. Or, mix it up and use up whatever is in your scrap bag stash.
Be sure to save some scraps for the charming sawtooth border. It adds the perfect finishing touch.
The pattern, by Gina Thackara, is for a 90″ x 102″ queen sized quilt. You can change the size by adjusting the number of blocks.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
