Or Make One for a Mini!

This beautiful block is a clever combination of a Churn Dash block and a Bear Paw. The result is a stunning block that can be used many ways.

Finish one block into a table topper or mini wall quilt. Three or more blocks in a row would make a wonderful table runner or combine several for a larger quilt.

The most striking version of this block is achieved with two solid or tone-on-tone fabrics. Prints will produce a softer look. Notice, too, how the block can be changed by switching the placement of the background color.

The following quilt is made from both renditions of the block, alternating across the surface. A combination of prints and solids add interest to the compelling design.

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!
