Bear-ly Making Progress!

Paw print blocks are in major product here and there are almost enough blocks to go half way around the quilt. There will be a light border between the centre and the paw prints but I'm waiting to cut that until I see what measurement will be easiest to work with.
I'm thinking of at least one or two cornerstone blocks made from the sausage fabric. Yes, it's very noticeable and visually distracting, but this is not a quilt for judging or display. It's for my family, and they will love seeing the sausages on the front of the quilt (story here).
It's now less than 2 weeks until I wanted to use this quilt on our first major camping trip of the summer. The pressure is really on!

  5. Your Mod Bear Paw top is looking great! I've got mine on the back burner, but it must come out again this year, I hope.

  7. So cute. Umm, one paw print top dead center looks deformed. Poor bear! Maybe the sausage was too hot.

  8. LOL. the sausages are great! I love your interpretation of the pattern. As for the finish, you can do it! And Lorna's quilting is easy, and looks like wind, so you should shamelessly copy her in that department. I did...

  9. This quilt is magic the way the bear paw block and pieced bear and paw border come together. And the sausages definitely deserve a spot on the front, IMHO. : )

  10. You are going to have to machine quilt that one, if you want to get it finished.
