    Da Bears!

    Chicago Bears! For my DH who grew up in the Chicago area, went to games with his Grandfather, and has shared his love of DA Bears with everyone in our family. Traditional bears paw block. White sashing with blue sashing - finished out at appx 62 x 82 as he wanted it long enough to cover his toes (he's 6'5") Quilted with dark blue thread, each block has a bears paw block motif,sashing is a trail of bears paws, what would be the cornerstones has a tilted football in them. This is probably the most traditional 'block' I've ever made and a few lost points but I'm proud of the finished results! Thanks for looking!

    Binding is orange

    OH, I like everything about your quilt, especially that cute touch of the bear paw motif in the quilting. : Bet your man gave you a bear HUG when you finished it!
