Paw paw is one of those quilts that got me excited right away and made me want to put it together quickly. Well, quickly for me is a couple of weeks!
To make it, I used a 9.5" unfinished bear paw block pattern. I fussy cut the larger bear circles for the main square and the smaller bear circles I didn't get as fiddly with when I cut them. The rest of the prints were used for the paw claw section. I have the backing fabric picked out and hope to quilt it in the next week or two.
Thank you all for your awesome comments on the excitedly constipated post! Just know that I am celebrating with each and every one of you who are grateful for the things (big or small!) in your life!!
And the winner of the Brrr! fq bundle is:
Tong!! who said: Best thing this week for me was the fact that I finally got over this cold I'd had for a long time. It's great to not feel like passing out all the time!
Go ahead and email me your address Tong and I'll get the fq bundle sent off to you.
