baby bear paw quilt


I got a bear in my bonnet last night and decided I wanted to finish the bear paw quilt.

I had a play around with the layout, I didn't like it all random so I just played with moving the colours:


keeping it real, there were toys all over the floor!


I'm super happy with the end result, I love it.



I used prints from the Stash Stack Club bundles and low volume prints from a swap organised by the lovely Rebecca


The backing is from Winter Wonderland by Jay McCarroll and the binding is McKenzie stripe by Dena Designs.


I can't even remember where I got it and I wish I'd bought tonnes of it because it is so awesome and adds a fun element to the quilt. I like that it sort of looks like a zip too!


**This quilt is listed for sale in my Etsy shop!**

It is the first finish off my FAL list for this quarter!

So with the baby bear done I'm going to move on to grown up bear paw blocks, if you want to make some along with me then join the Flickr group. There's lots of great modern inspiration there too!
