    I really love it with just the green and that neutral batik. In this case, less is definitely more! I think that your choice to hand quilt is right, because this one will really show it off!
    Bless, O Lord, the works of my hands....

    This is exactly what I was thinking - what beautiful fabrics, so simple and yet just gorgeous.

    Beautiful quilt. Love the colors and fabrics that you chose. You did a wonderful job. Thank you for sharing.

    This is a great quilt and it gave me a solution to a quilt I've been wanting to make. My nephew is graduating from Baylor in May, and I really wanted to make him a Baylor quilt. Their colors are green and gold, and they are the Baylor Bears, so the bear paw pattern would be perfect. I wanted it to be a quilt that he could enjoy for years to come, and that would be good for a guy, and this is perfect!! Thanks so much for sharing your quilt with us. Kathy

    Looks great Kim! Enjoy the quilting process. You got the border on just in time for St. Patricks day. Do you have an Irish background?

    This has always been one of my favorite blocks and you certainly did it proud. Really like the two color idea. Eager to see it completed.

    I've never actually seen a quilt that was all bear paw blocks. Striking!
