    So I want to do a fall quilt and decided bear's paw in autumn colors would be ideal. Here is the first block. And may I add: I actually DID NOT paper piece!! Thanks to Donna Rae for her post

    I made half square triangles and they came out for once!!!! Whoot whoot! A few seams are off but for right now I am chuffed. :lol: :D 8)

    And just to add a pic from Michael's birthday party last night :)

    Found a block of Bear Paw that I had made. I changed it ever so slightly so that the paws are one after the other in a circle, and changed its name to "Follow Me". Someday I will make a whole quilt of this and quilt it with outlines of bears.

    i have nooooooooooooo idea what it is to be "chuffed" but since your block is so pretty, i assume it's a good thing. :lol:

    I love the Bear Paw and just got a pattern for a table runner in a quilt store called the quilting cupboard in Van Wert OHio. Cannot wait to do. You are inspiring me.
