Rainbow Bear Paws
Years ago, when Sarah lived in St. Louis, MO, she made a bear paw quilt by hand (hand pieced, hand bound, hand quilted) before she ever had a sewing machine or anyone to tell her how quilts were made. After learning a bit more and getting a nice sewing machine, Sarah made this bear paw quilt for the FVUMC annual quilt sale fundraiser back in 2019.
This was made from 100% cotton fabrics, 80/20 batting and was machine quilted by Sarah with wreaths (crosshatch centers) on the paw patchwork blocks and a 4-cornered set of feathers on the blank blocks. There are lacy ribbons added to the inner border as a dress-up accent to give the quilt a fancy feel. The border is quilted with interlocking hearts.
The binding is pieced from the rainbow of fabrics used on the front and the backer is a plain white 100% cotton flannel that makes the quilt soft and cuddly in the winter. There is a bonus block (framed in the same rainbow of pieced fabrics like the binding) placed on the lower back.
The quilt finished at about 51" x 64" and is a perfect size for a kid's bed or would make a nice lap quilt for your living room next winter.
