Whooping Friday

I'm whooping it up as the Black Bear quilt is finished.  This is Lorna @ SewFreshQuilts 'Bear Paw' pattern and the second quilt I have done with it.  I didn't use the border of small paw prints as it was requested to use RealTree fabrics (manufacturer of hunting appearal fabrics) in the outer borders.

All the bear paw blocks were done in scrappy fall color greens.  The grey sashing representing Birch Trees.  Finished 62" x 68" and glad to have this one crossed off the list.

Share The Spirit

Just a reminder that another inspiring Hop is just around the corner.  Hmmm, Fall and Winter projects - think I am done with extreme hot and humid weather?

I have my 'then' projects selected and I am working on the 'now' project.   I am not fond of working with Christmas fabrics so have selected a white/white Holly and Berry print to go with some seasonal polka dot - gotta love polka dot. 

Posting this off before the next storm takes the power again.

Sewingly Yours,


  1. Good to see Moe gave you a break to be able to quilt, this is a beautiful quilt.

  2. Your Black Bear quilt is wonderful! What a terrific finish.

  3. The bear quilt turned out wonderful. The outer border really does look like the forest in autumn.

  4. Okay, well, mystery solved. When you showed this quilt yesterday, I was asking myself, didn’t I see this quilt finished when I visited Sharon? It’s a favorite of mine. I love the bear paw border you did on the first one. I like the lighter colors on this one. What a fun quilt!

  5. Hope TS Faye didn't leave you with any damage. It looked like it was going to move through pretty quickly. We're due for storms today from the cold front coming through. A four day respite from the 90's, but more coming the end of next week.

  6. What a fantastic quilt - your bear appears to be walking right out of the quilt. Marvellous.

  7. Love your bears.both of them. Such a fun quilt

  8. A beautiful bear! Congrats on the finish. Looking forward to checking out what you've got in the works.

  9. That is a sneaky bear, peaking through the sashing!
