    I thought I would never get this thing done!!!!! It is HUGE!!And I think it will actually fit this time! I still have to mark it, then baste it(YUK) then quilt it. I put the one picture in here so you can see how small the little paws actually are . This is the same Bearpaw that I have been working on forever.

    Gorgeous! Its hard to tell about the bear paws in the "on the bed shot", but the look great next to your hand. I would have never guessed they were that small. I'm doing 1 with the FG like that right now...like you...I don't think I'll ever finish ...but the journey is sure fun!

    Keep us posted..I can't wait to see more! Love it :D

    That one is a keeper! (meaning I hope you get to keep it and enjoy it!) I love how you combined everything (and can't ever imagine doing that many flying geese!--that does deserve some kind of an award!) It's GORGEOUS :!:

    Those little claw hst measure 3/4" finished. Those were actually fun to make. The Flying geese border I do like , but man sewing that long of strips of them, they got so wonkey on me , it was a chore getting that last border on. : :x I wish I could have made it so I could have sewed them in shorter segments. I can see now alot of things I would have done differently on the construction of it! And yes I will hand quilt, cause me and machine quilting is quite laughable.I envy all of you who do it. :mrgreen:
    And I am deffinatly keeping this one!

    Thanks everyone!!!
