Bear Paw Quilt
As a beginner, this is my first "real" quilt top. I just finished it as a wedding gift for my daughter who is getting married next week in Kansas City. After buying the precuts (Wooland Summer by Moda) last November, I tried several quilt patterns, but did not like how the fabric looked in any of them. After cutting a lot of different pieces, I just did not like my fabric selection in any of the patterns - I just didn't like the fabric that much. When I saw Jenny's Bear Paw tutorial in February, I thought this would be perfect - I would only use the fabrics in small pieces throughout the quilt. I had no idea what I was doing, much less what I was getting myself into. I received the written pattern in the April Block Magazine, but I was already well into the project. In the end, although I made tons of mistakes, I am pleased to have experienced this adventure. We are traveling from San Antonio to Kansas for the wedding and will be taking the quilt top to MSQ for quilting. When it is completed, my daughter can simply go pick it up at MSQ!
