Go Colorful or Emphasize One Color!
Bear Paw blocks combine with chain blocks to create this beautiful quilt. While you can start with fat quarters, it’s also a fun project for scraps.
We love the results when several colors are offset by a black chain against a light background. However, you can make it up in just two or three colors for an entirely different look.
Part of the fun of this design is that it can be given so many personalities. It will be beautiful in your favorite color palette as well as showcasing a beautiful pack of fat quarters. Or consider using prints and colors for any season.
We played in Photoshop to see how it would look in traditional red and white.
Instructions are provided by the designer, Jennifer Jones from Penelope Handmade, for the following quilt sizes:
- Baby – 42″ x 42″
- Throw – 70″ x 70″
- Twin – 70″ x 98″
- Queen – 98″ x 98″
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!
