Go Scrappy or Choose a Coordinated Palette!
Bear Paw blocks take on a whole new look in this eye-catching quilt. A wide variety of colors, a low-volume background and fussy cut centers give this traditional block a modern twist.
This is a fun pattern to play with, as it’s wonderful for scraps. Give yours a scrappy look or go with a more coordinated color theme. The results will be marvelous no matter what you choose.
The paw units are simple to make, as is the colorful sashing that separates them. Fussy cut those center cornerstones or not. The choice is yours.
The finished quilt, designed by Julie Boldry from Scarlet Thread Quilt Co., is 81″ x 81″. One unit of four Bear Paw blocks is about 27″ square, which is perfect for a charming table or wall quilt.
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!
