Description

This one started as a scrap challenge. The brown piece made me think cottage and the gold piece triggered Goldilocks, and I was off and running. It is 36 x 39, child quilt size.

3/24/13. Oops.  I must have been working from memory, for I have just found a "bear's paw" block in a book and it has 2 triangles to each side of the square, not three...oh well, whatever child gets this one won't know or care.

I love your quilt! How sweet the Papa-bear, Mama-bear, and Baby-bear -Bear-Paws are!

Clairealex

Sewzalot Thanks. It was fun making them. I panicked when I didn't have room for baby bear paw as a square, but as with most "errors," I like it better than if it had been as I designed at first.

That is the best kind of "error"! It is lovely.

I love the traditional blocks set in untraditional ways. So interesting and fun. Great use of of lights and darks in the setting makes it an art quilt.

Charwirfs Thanks! I remain pretty attached to traditional blocks even as I like to experiment. I'm also messing around with "modern" quilt design from old, old fabric. And of course old design from modern fabric.
