Another of my Fall 2016 projects is a Quilt Along which is offered by Sew Fresh Quilts Blog. This is the MOD Bear Paw QAL (Quilt Along). #MODbearpawQAL
Lorna has many fun, modern quilt patterns and I love that she gives a variety of sizes that can be made. This pattern is for sale, but for this QAL, the directions will be released during the coming weeks. While visiting her Etsy Shop, check out some of her other cute patterns.
Last Saturday’s Blog post revealed the cutting instructions and this Saturday we’ll get the Bear Paw Block instructions. We’ll have 2 weeks to work on all the blocks. Of course the number of blocks you need to make depends on which size you choose to make. I may make the Crib or Lap size.
This QAL will conclude on November 26 with a “Linky Party” to show off our completed quilt tops. I’m guessing some may actually get it quilted, but I’ll be happy if I get the top (flimsy) completed.
Although Lorna shares pictures of a lot of different color possibilities, I chose to stay with browns. I’m happy not to have to choose lots of different colors. That’s my biggest problem – choosing colors!
I will be busy and will not be able to download the next steps this Saturday. So I got a little head start and made a few Bear Paw Blocks.
As you can see, Lorna is using a traditional block, but adds a modern feature. I can’t wait to see how it comes out.
It’s not too late to get started. How about joining us?
