The wonderfully creative Janine of Rainbow Hare totally inspired me the other day with talk of a Bear Paw quilt.

I have always wanted to make one, so has she, and so I jumped in.

We are both going to try to make one by next summer.

I found some fabric (from my Pink Castle Stash Stack Club FQs and my Low Volume swap hosted by Rebecca):

And got to it:

I'm making paws. Just paws. Not a full bear paw block though I might try that next!

Want to bear with us?

Make a bear paw quilt, traditional blocks or more modern interpretation?

Have you already?

If you like, grab a button and join the Flickr group, where you will find lots of inspiration.

This is NOT a quilt along, there's no prizes or giveaways... so really no incentive to make anything except for the fact that bear paw blocks are so beautiful!
