Bear Paw QAL

Do I have time for a new QAL before Thanksgiving when Bonnie Hunter's big mystery starts?  I doubt it.  But this one is too tempting to pass.  I was especially excited when I saw Sharon's scrappy browns yesterday on her blog, Vrooman's Quilts.   I'm in too, following Sharon's lead. 

Then to my surprise -- or not -- I get a text from my quilting bestie, Julianne at Quilting with Calicos telling me to check out her blog post yesterday.  SHE is doing this QAL too.  AND BETTER YET, her friend, Julie, is too!  It's official -- I'M IN! 

Here's a picture of my tub of browns.  I'm thinking about going with red centers for the blocks and green sashing (or grey sashing, or red sashing).  Of course I'm going to have to go big on this one.  Those paw prints on the border are way to cute to leave out.

Then I stirred the bin a little and you can see more fun browns.

I'm linking my fabrics up to the linky party at Sew Fresh Quilts here.

I love how cute the button looks:

The picture below is from Lorna's blog post on Sew Fresh Quilts.  I even have a giant Circle Lord board (Egyptian Eye) that has similar quilting.  All I need to find is a big chunk of white fabric...  I'm sure there's one in my stash somewhere.


  1. So glad to hear you will be quilting along, Kathy! That's fantastic! Can't wait to see your Bear Paw blocks made using those scrappy browns. And I vote for the red centers!

  2. Fabulous! Sewing a QAL with friends makes it even more fun. Love your bucket of scrappy browns.
